Description

Celebrate Earth Day with your fellow Riverkeeper Board members and their family and friends on a kayak trip down the South Fork River! Riverkeeper staff will guide a 1.5-mile paddle from the McAdenville Greenway and Blueway Launch next to The River Room to Goat Island in Cramerton. We'll shuttle back to The River Room and walk over to Spruced Goose for lunch which is located across the street. 

 

You may rent a single or tandem kayak and accompanying gear or bring your own. There are only 20 kayak spots available, so register early! Youth must be eight years of age to ride in their own kayak or ride with an adult in a tandem kayak if under eight.
