Our Coastal Connection

June 3, 2017 – May 1, 2018

As part of Richmond Celebrates Canada 150, the new exhibit in the Seine Net Loft building, Our Coastal Connection, explores our historic connection to the local waterways and what we’re doing to keep our rivers and oceans healthy for future generations. Explore the stories of over twenty local groups profiled within the exhibit, all of which have dedicated remarkable efforts in areas of water conservation, education, awareness, recycling and entrepreneurship. In the face of 8 million metric tons of plastic waste entering our global oceans each year, local individuals have taken initiative, groups have formed and remarkable goals have been achieved – all in a fascinating effort to help us remember why we love our waters and what we can do to keep our rivers and oceans clean and safe for everyone to enjoy.
