Without a single source, the Grand River is fed by many different small rivers, creeks and tributaries that all combine to make the wide river that winds through the six nations. I grew up on the Laurel Creek, hung out with my friends along the Speed River, ate ice-cream on the banks of the Conestogo River, swam in the Elora quarry and once almost fell into the Nith River. This watershed region has been here since the last Ice Age and is the largest of it’s kind in Southern Ontario.
This is the personification of the Grand River Watershed Region as a grand old Dame about to do her watershed dance.
