Once a year, the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority provides a unique opportunity for people to discover the Don River by paddling approximately 15 km of the river from Ernest Thompson Seton Park to the Keating Channel. For the past few years XCG’s Oakville office has sponsored a team for this event, which helps TRCA raise money for the regeneration of the Don watershed. On May 1, 2011 some adventurous XCG staff braved the elements and took part in this amazing adventure canoeing down the river. Celebrating its 18th year Paddle the Don is all about having fun, enjoying nature and celebrating the watershed.
