Ottawa River Paddle & Hike
Saturday September 7, 9:30 am (from Sheenboro, Pontiac) will be the Ottawa River paddle and hike up the sacred cliff known as Oiseau Rock. This is a wonderful opportunity to see a beautiful part of the Ottawa River and have a guided tour of Oiseau Rock, a sacred rock art site of the Anishinabek Algonquin People. There is a beautiful view from on top of the cliff of the Ottawa River and environs. We will be paddling with our friends from Ottawa Riverkeeper and the Bonnechere River Watershed Project.
Our guide, Joann McCann, has invited us to launch our kayaks and canoes from her home near Sheenboro (Pontiac – west of Chapeau). From there, it is a 5-kilometre paddle to the base of the cliff and about a 20-minute hike to the top. Please bring your canoe or kayak, safety gear and a lunch.
A limited number of seats may be available in canoes. Please contact us to register and receive driving directions to the put in: firstname.lastname@example.org.
