  • Title: Our inspiration and vision - www.2riversfestival.org
    Descriptive info: The Speed and Eramosa Rivers are the source of inspiration for the week of festival events.. Our vision was to hold an annual festival inspired by the significance of the Speed and Eramosa Rivers to the surrounding communities and the Grand River watershed.. The festival is the product of the collaborative initiative of many organizations working towards the common goals of:.. i.. nspiring awareness, appreciation and restoration of the river system and.. providing a means of increasing awareness and effectiveness of participating organizations and their activities in the community.. The festival offers diverse programming relevant to the river systems that is creative and accessible to a broad audience.. The rivers and the Guelph community.. The 2 Rivers Festival builds on a long history of strong linkages with the Guelph community and the rivers that flow through it.. Recently, a group of environmentally focused students at the University of Guelph have worked to reinvigorate interest in initiatives that engage the community with the rivers.. The students' work explores past initiatives, such as the.. River Systems Management Study.. that highlighted.. the “extraordinary potential of the river corridors”,.. and follows more recent efforts, such as the.. River Systems Advisory Committee.. Their work, called.. the "Two Rivers Project", lead to the creation of a website.. which showcases.. upcoming events including the 2 Rivers Festival and provides an.. interesting way to learn about the rivers.. We highly.. recommend y.. ou check it out.. The website features:.. Video interviews with the chair of the River Systems Advisory Committee,  ...   Cambridge where it joins the Grand River.. Length from source to mouth: 70.. 9 km.. The Eramosa River.. Origin of the name: Local history books say it is named after Un-ne-mo-sah, an Indian word meaning dog.. There is also evidence from books and the internet that it could mean a specific kind of dog: black dog, dead dog, ornery dog, old dog or dog leg.. Exactly which native language is a little murky.. There is no "m" in any of the Six Nations languages.. Ojibway dictionaries give "animosh" as the translation for dog.. A book called The Dog's Children: Anishinaabe Texts Told by Angeline Williams tells many Ojibwe/Anishinaabe stories about half-dog people.. Starts near Ospringe and flows through Guelph.. Length from source to mouth is 40.. 4 km and it is the shortest of the four main tributaries of the Grand River.. Lots of groundwater enters the Eramosa River.. Did you know that both of these rivers are designated as Canadian Heritage Rivers?.. When the Grand River was designated in 1994, its four major tributaries were also designated.. The other two tributaries are the Nith and the Conestogo rivers.. They all join the Grand River which flows into Lake Erie.. The entire watershed is about the size of Prince Edward Island..
