The BC Canadian Water Resources Association-Students and Young Professionals group is organizing a summer social and potluck next week to get to know one another, share some food / laughs / lawngames, and talk about what you'd like to see from the CWRA SYP this upcoming 2016/2017 year. Never attended a CWRA event? Have a great event and/or speaker idea you'd like to see organized? Just want to hang in the sun and have some fun with new and old friends? Then this evening is for you! Details are below and feel free to bring your friends, family, neighbours, and non-CWRA members.

What: BC CWRA SYP summer social & potluck
 
Who: BC CWRA SYP-ers, friends, family, partners, kids, dogs, etc....open invite!
 
When: Thursday August 18th at 6:30pm
 
Where: Creekside Park beside Science World (near Science World Skytrain station and Olympic Village Canada Line station, on seawall)
 
Why: Why not? To meet/socialize with your fellow CWRA SYP-ers, close out the summer with a waterfront potluck, share some food and chats and lawngames and talk about what you'd like to see the BC CWRA SYP group accomplish in the coming year!

Thank you to those who were able to come out and support the CWRA Student and Young Professionals and the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup Event at Tower Beach. It was a great evening for networking, socializing, discovering new places, all while supporting a great cause! Special thanks to Katie De Rego for leading the organization of the event and making sure we were fully geared for the evening (including post cleanup cookies and lemonade!). We were able to collect two garbage bags full of trash and three bags of plastic and glass recyclables. The type of trash and quantities were recorded by our group and will be reported back to the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup organizers. The recorded trash information will be used by Shoreline Cleanup to better understand the sources of shoreline litter and educate about the impacts of litter on wildlife and people. 
 
We look forward to meeting more CWRA members at exciting events to come!
