Not only will we paddle, we’ll also learn about river ethics, safety, geology, ecology, and take time to just play. Prior paddling experience required. Trips led by American Canoe/Kayak Certified and experienced instructors.  All transportation, equipment and PFD’s provided. Trips may be cancelled due to inclement weather.
