The Thelon - Canadian Heritage River
Hello Everyone!Ahhhh! What a great summer. Not one for the hot and
sticky weather, this was one of my best summers yet :o)
Hope you all had as much fun in the great outdoors, smelling the
flowers, dipping in the cool lakes.

CPAWS Ottawa Valley, though, never takes summer breaks. So, there's
lots to catch up on, and that's exactly what we'll be doing for this
first WILDerness Wednesday. A bit of this, a bit of that, local and
national issues. We'll be giving you concise updates on: Algonquin
wolves, Species At Risk Act, hunting in wilderness parks, Quebec
protected areas strategy ....

And after the break, two of our board members, Muriel and Larry, will
be sharing thoughts, scenes and their personal experiences on the
Thelon River this summer. The Thelon is a Canadian Heritage River,
designated for a unique history, tremendous wilderness canoeing, and
much more. On its long journey to the Arctic sea, the river
the heart of the Thelon Game Sanctuary - the largest and most remote
wildlife refuge in Canada.

Hope to see you all on WED, OCT 4th!
We have great plans for upcoming WILDerness Wednesdays too ..
So stay tuned!

conservation areas, perhaps partly because it was created and has
retained by its own legislation.

The Thelon has an allure among wilderness travellers who dream of
going there, to see the sanctuary, the wildlife and the untouched

For many Canadians, it is a special place.

It is our river sanctuary."
