Over the last five years, the Ottawa River Institute (ORI) and the Bonnechere River Watershed Project (BRWP) and have partnered with businesses, other organizations and municipalities to provide about 1000 paddler trips on local waterways to residents and visitors through the Celebrate Our Rivers paddle series.  There will be even more opportunity to paddle in 2017, Canada’s 150th, with a few of the now 16 paddle events again featuring local food and music.  Some of the paddles require advance registration to help with logistics, while others do not. Any profits after expenses to organize and run the series will benefit the lead organizations. So bring your paddle craft (canoe, kayak, paddle board) and join others in Celebrating Canada’s 150th and Our Rivers!
