COVID-19 update. Back on the water!

With local counties entering Phase 2 of the state reopening plan, we are offering day trips again. Watch the Events page for new trips and let Trip Coordinator Steve Phelps know if there’s a trip you’d like to do.

Note that trip leaders will be following these guidelines:

  • Small group size, at discretion of trip leader; recommended maximum of eight.
  • Each paddler needs to sign a COVID-19 consent form and make sure they do not have any of the COVID-19 symptoms: fever, shortness of breath, loss of taste or smell, or dry cough, runny nose or sore throat.
  • Paddlers will practice social distancing, including wearing a mask during the pre-paddle talk.

We look forward to seeing you!
