    2 Rivers BIPOC Paddle

    At this event, BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour) community members are invited to join us for a paddle up the Eramosa.

It is a unique opportunity to explore the rivers in a safe and welcoming space - free from judgment or discrimination.

    Water Sport Donation Drive

    The Cost of equipment for water sports like canoeing, kayaking, and stand-up paddle boarding can offer a barrier for many members of our community. Help facilitate water access by donating your gently used or new equipment to the Water Sport Donation Drive. We will be collecting boats, paddle boards, safety equipment (e.g. PFDs), paddles, and more. Please reach out to [email protected] if you'd like to arrange a donation drop off outside of June 19th 10am - 4pm.
