Today I received great news that The Friends of the Winooski are organizing a river race on the Winooski River on Saturday June 7th (from Bolton-Richmond). In the spirit of collaboration, the Vermont River Conservancy is a co-sponsor along with Umiak Outdoor Outfitters. This event is geared toward generating enthusiasm for water-based recreation in the Winooski River watershed, and raising awareness about the efforts of the two organizations in the region. Proceeds from the race will support projects to improve public access and riparian land restoration in the watershed.
Registration is only $25 if you signup before May 31st.
Vermont SUP will be there sharing there love for the sport with fellow paddling junkies. For more info about the event and to sign up or help volunteer visit their website.
