Playing host to hundreds of international scientists and environmentalists will be a little easier for the organizers of the 12th Annual St. Lawrence River Institute of Environmental Sciences' Conference after getting a $2,500 contribution from Ontario Power Generation (OPG).

"Our Institute's annual international conferences have become valuable venues for scientific and environmental knowledge sharing and collaboration, as well as providing Eastern Ontario with a much-needed profile," assured conference coordinator Christina Collard. "Such information is needed to ensure intelligent, cost-effective and sustainable management of all our water sources, including the St. Lawrence/Great Lakes ecosystem and its tributaries."

Helping to fund the three-day conference is part of the continued dedication shown by OPG in hopes of helping to improve the quality of life in neighbouring communities through their Corporate Citizenship Program.

"We enter into partnerships with many associations such as the St. Lawrence River Institute of Environmental Sciences to help improve the quality of the environment and the quality of public information about resources as important as water," explained OPG public affairs officer Linda Halliday.
