FOR OUR

FUTURES

AN UNFORGETTABLE EVENING OF STORYTELLING & SCIENCE TO CELEBRATE THE LAUNCH OF RIPARIA

Welcome to our official launch event! Our mission is to motivate and inspire young women to enjoy and protect fresh waters and the outdoors by running free outdoor trips that impart a lifetime of love and understanding of fresh waters.

Canoe through the sprawling Canadian wilderness, scuba dive with colourful reef fish and navigate icy Northern glaciers with first access to a virtual reality experience brought to you by the National Geographic Society.

Learn more about our free outdoor trips that impart a lifetime of love and understanding of fresh waters to the next generation of Canadian women and connect with a community of Canadian change-makers.

THE VENUE

The Canadian Museum of History's permanent galleries explore Canada's 20,000 years of human history and a program of special exhibitions expands on Canadian themes and explore other cultures and civilizations, past and present.  The museum is located in Canada's National Capital Region, along the beautiful Ottawa River, just a 20 minute walk away from downtown Ottawa.

Guests will also receive access to the UNCEDED exhibit - a breathtaking multimedia installation that brings together the past, present and future of the Indigenous experience, as seen through the eyes and minds of 18 distinguished Indigenous architects and designers from across Turtle Island (North America).
