Please join us as we explore Hamilton’s Chedoke Creek watershed — its history, its water quality, and what the City of Hamilton and home-owners living in the watershed can do to further improve this resource. Invited speakers include local author John Terpstra (who recently published Daylighting Chedoke — Exploring Hamilton’s Hidden Creek), Mark Bainbridge (Director, Water & Wastewater Planning and Capital), and representatives from Redeemer University College and the Royal Botanical Gardens, who have been monitoring water quality and working to restore Cootes Paradise into which the Chedoke Creek flows.
