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!
