"We protect what we love. The annual 2Rivers Festival helps us to fall in love with our rivers over and over again. Guelph’s river system is its most important ecological, cultural and recreational feature. The annual 2Rivers Festival is a forum to showcase and celebrate our two beautiful rivers and to engage our whole community in imagining how each one of us can become a vital participant in the regeneration of our river ecosystems.
Since 1958, the Crowe Valley Conservation Authority (CVCA) has worked in partnership with its ten member municipalities and the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR). With its head office in Marmora, Ontario, the CVCA operates 13 dams along the Crowe River and its tributaries. The CVCA also maintains a stream flow forecasting center to help reduce the risk of flooding.
