WaterChestnut project - Part 1


  • Black rapids Locks 3047 73 Ottawa, ON, K2C 3H1 Canada (map)

Hi everyone, 

Our troop is participating in a great project to help our local rivers. First part of our project will be held on June 18-19. 

Our task is to remove an invasive species, called the European WaterChestnut out of the Rideau river. We will be doing this task in our new Kayaks provided thanks to some funding from Ministry of the Environment and Climate change. We have been invited by Parks Canada to camp at the locks to help up accomplish the project.

We will need as many Scouts as possible to help do a great job!

The camp is free, Sign up here please.
