GW2.0 explained in the NGWA Summit Plenary

Listen to Cathy Ryan (Professor, University of Calgary and HWB volunteer!) as she explains the vision for GW2.0 in the ‘Pillars of Groundwater’ session that honoured Dr. John Cherry and Dr. Al Freeze.  In addition to talking about the impact that GW2.0 might have, she introduces “Teaching Moments in Hydrogeology” idea, where groundwater teaching veterans impart lessons learned.

The National Groundwater Association’s permission to share this presentation publicly is very much appreciated.  Stay tuned for the first ‘Teaching Moments in Hydrogeology’ talks, coming your way soon.

Peter Russell will start work on GW2.0 cover image!

We’re THRILLED that Peter Russell, longtime champion and curator of the University of Waterloo’s Earth Sciences Museum, and champion behind the Children’s Groundwater Festivalhas agreed to work on illustrations for GW2.0!

Peter was the illustrator for the cover and chapter logos in Groundwater (1979). You might not have noticed his acknowledgement inside the cover (see below). He tells us that the GW2.0 work will be in colour :).Peter Russell 1979
