Capital to Capitol: One Group Advocates For Clean, Safe Water
Capital to Capitol is a trip that was organized by the Canadian Wildlife Federation to raise peoples' awareness of our need to protect our waterways. A group of paddlers are taking a voyageur canoe from Ottawa to Washington DC; an 1800km trip.
After reading this article, I went to the official website of the 'Capital to Capitol' project. On the homepage it says “The trip will be done in memory of Elder William Commanda and his vision for a Circle of all Nations, with the canoe as a symbol of how people, water, and nature combine and work together to animate peace, healing, and understanding.” It is important for people to cooperate with and take care of the earth so that it will be able to take care of us. I think that what these people are doing is really important; it's important for people to be aware of ecological problems.
The paddlers launched on September 5th, and they can be followed on Facebook.
