As an engaged non-profit organization, the Bonnechere River Watershed Project has devoted much of its time to community involvement and environmental stewardship including, most recently, our Riverwatch Program. While progress has been made through these initiatives, the BRWP is continuously searching for opportunities to inform decision-making. It is with this particular mindset that a fellow non-profit organization, Ottawa Riverkeeper, has organized the Ottawa River Summit, scheduled for Wednesday, August 27, 2010. The summit aims to engage a variety of municipal staff representing the Ottawa River watershed in discussions of issues regarding the condition of the river, developing a shared vision for the future of the watershed, and promoting public involvement in probelm solving. Given that the Bonnechere River watershed is within the Ottawa River watershed, the BRWP looks forward to our municipalities attending the Summit and seeing what shall become of this exciting opportunity.
