As I have long been inspired in my visual art by the marshes and wetlands of Ontario, it was a natural progression for me to become involved with a registered Canadian charity that works diligently to protect and promote clean water for everyone. Lake Ontario Waterkeepers (LOW) was founded by lawyer Mark Mattson and researcher Krystyn Tully in 2000 following the Walkerton Tragedy. The group’s motto is “Swimmable, Drinkable, Fishable Water”. LOW works toward enforcing environmental laws, restoring habitat, and protecting human health through law, science, culture and digital media.
