Celebrate Earth Day 2018 by joining the second annual Wetland broadcast on Sunday, April 22. Connect your everyday activities to the circadian rhythm of a Saturna Island, British Columbia marsh. The voices of creatures—frogs, birds, insects and more—take over the airwaves for this twenty-four-hour experience in “slow radio” created and produced by multidisciplinary artists Brady Marks and Mark Timmings with technical assistance from Emmy-nominated recording engineer Eric Lamontagne. Tune in via participating campus and community radio stations across Canada, or stream the soundscape online in sync with your local time, from anywhere in the world. Tweet @wetlandproject to add your voice to the interactive online stream.

The Wetland soundscape was first broadcast on Vancouver Co-op radio on Earth Day 2017. This year it will broadcast on: 

Vancouver, BC: Vancouver Co-operative Radio CFRO 100.5 FM
Powell River, BC: Powell River Community Radio CJMP 90.1 FM
Edmonton, AB: Edmonton Independent Radio CJSR 88.5 FM
Thunder Bay, ON: Lakehead University Radio CILU 102.7 FM

CJRU is proud to join campus and community stations from across the country for this broadcast. We will begin our broadcast at 1AM EST on Sunday April 22. 

The Wetland broadcast is presented by Vancouver Co-operative Radio and CRES Media Arts Committee with support from the Canada Council for the Arts and the City of Vancouver
