DETAILS

The Ottawa Riverkeeper Gala

The Riverkeeper Gala is the National Capital Region’s premier fundraising event to support a clean and healthy river and one of the most talked about events on the Ottawa social calendar. 

 

Join us on May 29th, 2024 for a wonderful evening celebrating the beautiful Ottawa River while enjoying stunning sunset views over the water at River House. Delicious food, stellar drinks, and a floor-shaking dance party will blow you away. 

This is a cocktail-style event, so bring your best "River Chic" outfit! Doors open at 6 pm.

Featured Guests

Jill Heinerth

We are overjoyed to announce that the incredible Jill Heinerth will become the next Honorary Riverkeeper!

 

Jill Heinerth is a world-renowned cave diver and explorer, taking her to the most amazing and hidden places on the planet. In a workday, she might swim below your home, through conduits in volcanoes or cracks in the world’s largest iceberg. She’s an explorer, a scientist’s eyes and hands underwater—discovering new species and examining our finite freshwater reserves—and a filmmaker documenting the wonders of underwater life.

The best part? She’s a huge fan of the Ottawa River, having explored the fascinating and mysterious networks of caves underneath this watershed.
