Podcast Season 1: Stack Watch
Maintaining healthy air is one of the core mandates at Environment Hamilton. Yet, this maintenance proves a challenge in Hamilton due to a manifold of issues: the presence of heavy industry as one core example.
Enter Stackwatching! It has been our way to help Hamiltonian's observe, document, and report problem emissions from the city's industrial core. Since 2003, we have been developing tools and bringing community on educational walks around industry to help people to do this effectively.
Now, with our new podcast, we’re putting the knowledge to Stackwatch right into your hands!
Over the 9 episodes, you will follow a self-guided tour of Pier 8 / Copps Pier Park. Each episode speaks to key information to know about Stackwatching - from an overview of the Harbourfront development to a breakdown of the industrial landscape and everything in between.
Here is a map of the route.
NEW - If you partake in a walk, take a photo or selfie with visible industry and tag us on Twitter @EnvHamilton / hashtag #StackWatchingHamOnt
