Dip Your Paddle and Celebrate Our Rivers This Summer
Over the last six years, the Bonnechere River Watershed Project (BRWP) and the Ottawa River Institute (ORI) have partnered with businesses, other organizations and municipalities to provide over 1000 paddler trips on local waterways to residents and visitors through the Celebrate Our Rivers paddle series. The 2018 series has already begun and there are 9 more opportunities to dip your paddle and explore the beauty of our local freshwater rivers over the next few months. Some of the paddles require advance registration to help with logistics, while others do not. The BRWP is also characterizing water quality on the paddles using the Water Rangers Guardians test kit so there’s an opportunity to learn about how to partner on a citizen science program for Renfrew County. So bring your curiosity, paddle craft (canoe, kayak, paddle board) and join others in Celebrating Our Rivers!
