Discover the events, mobilization and fundraising campaigns in which the Foundation has participated or that it has organized in recent years for the protection of rivers and waterways in Quebec.
The concept of the Grand Splash was born in Quebec City in 1994 thanks to the Société des Gens de Baignade. In 2018, la Fondation Rivières joined the adventure and became the main organizer the following year.
Energy and unjustified hydroelectric dams
Mobilization against the Val-Jalbert power plant
La Fondation Rivières led a series of actions between 2012 and 2015 to prevent the construction of a hydroelectric power plant on the Ouiatchouan Falls in Val-Jalbert.
Adoptez une rivière
Adoptez une rivière was originally an operation to prevent the government from destroying 36 waterfalls to build hydroelectric power plants. In 2001, about a hundred demonstrators and sixty artists mobilized to save a large part of these falls, in addition to contributing to the emergence of ecotourism projects. The movement launched the creation of the Fondation Rivières!
