    Interest in this last class from China, Russia, Netherlands, ChileExtended time; added Polar Bear Pass, Reynolds Creek; across Canada plus Scotland; collaborators grew over time international in scope Europe and NAPublications includes HESS special issueAnnual workshops start and end in Saskatoon numbers ranged from 50 to 90 participants Saskatoon, Waterloo, Whitehorse, Lake Louise, Ottawa conjunction with CGU, Saskatoon todayCRHM Waterloo, Calgary, Winnipeg, Red deer, Yellowknife and SaskatoonMESG Waterloo, Edmonton AB govt hydrologists, Saskatoon1.2.3. 20 water resource practitioners and local audience of 70 with WC2N in Golden4. Driven by CRHUG one day CRHM, second day overview of research in the north presented by all of the northern investigators Pomeroy, Spence, Marsh, Pietroniro, with a public presentation by Bill Quinton Permafrost thaw impacts on northern water resources5. ASRD - meetings

    Published 10 newsletters intent to post a final newsletter before IP3 ends this month with summary and future contact info

    -public events 50 -100 people; from U of S, Spain, SFU, Germany, USA, Switzerland, U of C good timing took advantage of visiting scientists- Sponsored by CFCAS, Centre for hydrology, Biogeoscience institute at U of c, WC2N, Western Watersheds climate research collaborative, United Nations water for life decade, Canadian Rockies public schools and Lafarge North America

    Not well used good concept CRHM forum was used for questionsmasakis group Day shelter; Peyto researchers engaged public; Accessible sites engaging hiking public North - local First nationsParks Canada research updates speakers seriesSecret Water Masaki; Lake evaporation; CRHUG keep in mind members from two very different viewpoints policy makers vs users coming with different needs - those in upper management interested in findings to help in setting water policy, and actual hydrologists who want useful information and functional models- suggestion committee of the whole two subcommittees that meet more often- annual meetings for wholeUsers survey last year liked size and location of workshops smaller than professional associations where venues too large, continue improvement of modelling tools, importance of data collection continuing, willing to share data to common archive, Media difficult to interest in general science looking for tags tied to climate change best bets local good success with smaller local media Canmore engaged with Marmot research, Whitehorse and Yellowknife CBC Radio very open, again as well as local media. U of S has good relationship with Star-Phoenix Workshops in varying locations key to success each workshop breeds a list of people interested in next time new reality no govt travelBlog suggestions to make better students more lie to participate not sure of value good for CRHM supportWeb page visited often one stop shop good idea Where is it going Michael, Bob and John to follow
