The Rideau Roundtable....presents “Capital to Capitol”
In collaboration with Hotel Kenney and the Canadian Wildlife Federation
In September and October 2012, a group of people paddled in a Voyageur canoe 1800km from Ottawa to Washington D.C. to advocate for clean and healthy river systems.
Twenty five canoeists participated, five of which made the whole journey. Along the way there were many adventures. You are invited to learn more about the trip, its very important purpose, what we learned, and meet many of the participants.
Free Admission: donations gladly accepted to support the work of Rideau Roundtable
