CABIN in the Media

Water Canada logo.The CABIN program was featured in the January/ February 2011 issue of Water Canada magazine. The article entitled "Infesting Wisely: Using Bugs to Assess Water Quality" by Kelly Cowper describes the use of biological monitoring to get a bigger picture of aquatic ecosystem health. Cowper explains CABIN and the reference condition approach in a very clear and simple fashion so that it is easily understood by decision-makers and non-scientists.

The "Arrow Lakes News" proudly profiles the work of “citizen scientists” dedicated to assessing the health of wadeable creeks in the Columbia basin using CABIN as part of BC’s Arrow Lakes Environmental Stewardship Society on November 13, 2011.
