The essence of this program, personally, is bonding, thro’ learning with first rate interpreters, great environments and world famous location with great food in Hotel Kenney.  This hotel was declared by Queen Victoria’s daughter declared to the most beautiful place in Canada, and former US president Taft came in summer to enjoy the beauty and tranquility.  Jones Falls contains some key features that led this part of the Rideau to become Ontario’s only World Heritage Site.

Our chief interpreter, Max Finklestein, is an author, biologist, adventurer,  a world record holder of paddling from Kingston to Ottawa in 22 hours, with a paddling record of 25,000 km, half the distance of the equator all across Canada, the Americas, Europe and Australia.

Other guest interpreters include: 

Simon Lunn, photographer, naturalist interpretive and former superintendent of Ann of Green Gables in Prince Edward Island,

Don McKay, teacher, heritage interpreter and former blacksmiths at Jones Falls, joining us in his vacation

Andrea Howard,  education officer of the former Eastern Biodiversity Museum, owner of Museum in a Box, and retired teacher of drama, French and ecolgy.

Stewart Graham, wildlife biologist and our Rideau Experience Coordinator.

Should grand parent/s like to enable her/his/their offspring and grand child/children to have that experience, but like to join them ONLY in breakfast, the 5-course supper, and in the TWO evening programs,  made complimentary by the Rideau Roundtable, they can do so with the special hotel package rate of $340 per person.
