Would you paddle over 300 river miles to promote a clean and healthy Potomac and Shenandoah River? Maybe not, but our three Riverkeepers plan to do just that and you can join us for part of the fun!
Starting on September 19th, Potomac Riverkeeper Dean Naujoks intends to paddle 300 miles of the Potomac River, starting in Cumberland Maryland. Joined by Upper Potomac Riverkeeper Brent Walls and Shenandoah Riverkeeper Mark Frondorf, together they will paddle more than 20 segments of the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers. This incredible journey down the Potomac watershed will take place over the course of three weeks, ending October 10th at Point Lookout, Maryland, where the Potomac River enters the Chesapeake Bay.
Interested in spending a few hours or days on the river with our Riverkeepers? You’re in luck! We have special paddle days to include our members and the public on select sections of both the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers. Hope to see you out on the river!
