Engage With the Environment

Join the Service Squad, where we take direct action to clean up our rivers and streams.

Rivers and streams bring people together to share the love of a safe, family-friendly experience on the water. Usership of water trails has skyrocketed in recent years, and it’s more important than ever to have clean water that people can enjoy safely, whether on a kayak, canoe, paddleboard, or tube.
