Paddle Potomac! Paddle Shenandoah! 2015

Would you paddle over 300 river miles to promote a clean and healthy Potomac and Shenandoah River? Maybe not, but our three Riverkeepers did just that.

Starting on September 19th, Potomac Riverkeeper Dean Naujoks paddled 300 miles of the Potomac River, starting in Cumberland Maryland. Joined by Upper Potomac Riverkeeper Brent Walls and Shenandoah Riverkeeper Mark Frondorf, together they paddled more than 20 segments of the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers. This incredible journey down the Potomac watershed took place over the course of three weeks, ending October 10th at Point Lookout, Maryland, where the Potomac River enters the Chesapeake Bay.

We had special paddle days when our members and the public joined us on select sections of both the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers.
