The Waccamaw RIVERKEEPER® is hosting the 2019 Wake Up Paddle Series on the Waccamaw River Blue Trail. The goal of these paddles is to draw attention to the Waccamaw River Blue Trail and issues faced by the Waccamaw RIVERKEEPER® in the effort to protect clean water.
We are holding monthly paddles from May through September in 2019. All paddles are morning paddles from 9:00 am – 11:00 am.
The Waccamaw River is an excellent river for kayakers of all experience levels.
Even if you’ve never paddled before, you can do any of these paddles. No kayak? No problem! Black River Outdoors will provide kayaks for anyone who needs them. Spaces are limited and registration is required! ($15 for RIVERKEEPER® members, $20 for non-members)
Register here or call (843) 349-4007. Further instructions for when and where to meet and what to bring will be communicated via email prior to the paddle.
We hope to see you on the river!
