What lies beneath …

Most of us we have a very limited awareness, understanding and appreciation of ground water. Ground water sustains us and our natural communities, sometimes we unknowingly abuse it and we proudly brand where we live as the Headwaters Region. We are so fortunate to present Sarah Griffith a hydrogeologist who will take us on a journey below into the world of ground water here in the Headwaters Region. Sarah’s talk will focus on the importance of groundwater, how we need to give more consideration to managing groundwater and what we as citizens should know about wells, septic systems and other ways we impact ground water.

Unearth the role of geoscientists in the everyday growth of our communities. Dig deep into hydro-geo-environmental investigations and discover how regulated professionals help make well-informed decisions, from managing resources to preserving the environment. Explore the blending of science and decision-making, where geoscience provides a practical foundation for a responsible future, and find out how easy it is to spot geoscience projects in your neighbour!

Raised in Caledon East, Sarah Griffith is a Hydrogeological G.I.T. registered with Professional Geoscientists Ontario. After graduating from the University of Waterloo, she started a career in the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction industry where she uses hydrogeology and environmental science to help clients make decisions in the interests of the public. Beyond work, Sarah is dedicated to promoting earth science literacy and is enthusiastic about empowering communities with knowledge to understand both their environment and governing policies.


One More Thing:

Headwaters Nature is once again showing ourselves off at the Orangeville Lions Home & Garden Show at the ‘Ag Centre’ out on #5 Sideroad of Mono from Saturday, April 6, 2023 – 9:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M., and Sunday, April 7, 2023 – 10:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M.

We need volunteers to work together or along to be the greeters and enticers to show off our passions for the natural world.  You don’t need to any sort of expert — just a friendly and engaging person.  If this were to be your first time doing this, we’d pair you with someone who as done this volunteering before. We also need to update our poster board, the old pre-pandemic version of which is shown below.

If you have photos or posters or other items that could replace any or all of the items on this old board, please bring them to the N3 Nature Nerds meeting, or send them to
