Watershed Beach Pass

This summer, Ottawa Riverkeeper is proud to present your Watershed Beach Pass, your passport to outdoor summer entertainment.

As challenging as 2020 has been, restrictions are easing and beach season is upon us all across the Ottawa River watershed. While we may not be able to gather as we have in previous years, we are still able to enjoy our time near the water’s edge doing some of our favourite activities.

This summer, Ottawa Riverkeeper is proud to present your Watershed Beach Pass, your passport to outdoor summer entertainment.

So get ready, but most of all, get excited! No matter what beach you go to throughout the season, take your Watershed Beach Pass and you will have a chance to win some amazing prizes all while helping to protect your lakes and rivers.

How to play:

  • Step 1: Register your Watershed Beach Pass at www.ottawariverkeeper.ca/beachpass.
  • Step 2: Visit one (or several) of the awesome beaches in the watershed and do at least 7 of the activities on the pass.
  • Step 3: Let us know by email, Twitter, Facebook or Instagram when you are done using the hashtag #WatershedBeachPass, and be entered into a draw to win a brand new Ottawa Riverkeeper beach towel.
  • Bonus: do all 10 activities to earn a bonus entry!

There will be 3 draws every week until the end of the summer, so get your pass in early for more chances to win!

Limit one Watershed Beach Pass per person, but no limit per family/household, so you all could win prizes. All you have to do is register more than one email.
