Natalie's talk will weave together her two passions - kayaking and science. Her global kayaking explorations and research documenting and understanding rivers to sustainably manage earth's fragile water systems complement each other. Her early research focused on driftwood in the Slave River and Great Slave Lake of the South Slave Region. She is currently in Inuvik studying driftwood deposits in the Mackenzie River Delta. Her work highlights the importance of natural delivery of wood to deltas to maintain productive ecosystems and healthy oceans.
