In this episode, Derik Hyatt chats with Mark Mattson, one of Canada’s most seasoned environmental lawyers and the founder of several water charities, including Swim Drink Fish.  In addition to being Swim Drink Fish’s President, he is the Waterkeeper for Lake Ontario, a water quality advisor to the International Joint Commission, a board member for the US-based Waterkeeper Alliance, and a member of Ontario’s Great Lakes Guardians Council.  One specific goal shapes Mark Mattson’s life and work: swimmable, drinkable, fishable waters for everyone.
Swim Drink Fish is a nonprofit organization working to connect people with water since 2001.  They use citizen science and communications technology to inspire people just like you to know and safeguard your local waters.  Their apps and programs can help you get to the water’s edge. They’ll connect you with the water and with other people. They can teach you to monitor the health of your water. Together, you’ll advocate for the protection and restoration of the places we all love.  Because everyone has a right to swimmable, drinkable, fishable water.
