Celebrate Our Rivers and Watersheds
 Paddles and Hikes

Over the past few years, the Bonnechere River Watershed Project has partnered with the Ottawa River Institute (ORI) and numerous other organizations and municipalities to bring group paddle opportunities to residents and tourists. Some of the events also feature local food and entertainment, and all feature lots of fun! 


Celebrate Our Rivers and Watersheds 2020 

Although some of the planned excursions have had to be cancelled due to Covid-19 regulations, we are hoping that we'll be able to hold some of these. Mark you calendars, just in case!
