Our partnership with RiverWatch

RiverWatch helps students explore the North Saskatchewan River. We have a longstanding partnership with RiverWatch to support student learning. Over the past 18 years, more than 50,000 students have toured through our Gold Bar plant as part of the RiverWatch program. In the summer of 2018, Gold Bar was part of RiverWatch's new River Ambassador Program, which brought community members by our plant as part of an on-water learning experience.
