The 2017 River Cleanup Paddle Event will be held on the Middle Shuswap River, upstream from Wilsey Dam/Shuswap Falls.
What to bring?
Please bring your own gloves, snacks, water, lunch, and appropriate clothing for the weather. Boats and paddling equipment is not provided, but available to rent upon request.
Please join us! We need your help to clean up the shores around the ‘Meadows’ campsite before we head downstream in our canoes or kayaks. You can also contribute by providing a shuttle at the end of the day for paddlers to get back to their vehicles.
Please note that some river paddling experience is required for this event. Although the river is low this time of year, it is not without its hazards. Please contact us to discuss your eligibility, or register here for a river canoeing clinic to help you prepare.
Transportation for up to 10 people can be provided from Vernon with their canoes at no cost. A shuttle will be provided for you at the end of the day to get back to your vehicle.
