Help protect our beautiful Ottawa River and watershed
I participated in the Ottawa Riverkeeper Swim last year (750m) and I loved it. I came in second place and thought I would try the 1.5km this year. The idea that our environment is at risk (because of our use of plastics in particular) makes me really upset. I don't want our Ottawa River, or any other waterways, to be hurt by pollution. My brother and I love swimming in the lakes and rivers, and want to make sure we can keep doing that our whole lives.
The Ottawa River is our nation's capital river and we are so fortunate to have this incredible resource running right through the Ottawa-Gatineau region. Whether you enjoy swimming, fishing, paddling, or strolling alongside its banks, its beauty and the recreational opportunities abound. But it needs our help to protect it and keep it clean and healthy.
Will you join in me to help protect and promote the health of this beautiful river? Please make a donation and help me reach my fundraising goal!
Through programs like Pollution Hotline and Ottawa Riverkeeper's new road salt monitoring program coming next winter we can help keep our river swimmable, drinkable and fishable for all of us to enjoy!
