Registration is now open for the 2016 Yadkin Riverkeeper TOUR, the summer’s most fun paddling events!
The TOUR is in its seventh year, thanks to all of you who have supported our efforts to keep the Yadkin River swimmable, fishable and drinkable.
The TOUR features a series of daily paddles over four weekends this summer. Novice and experienced paddlers can register for all paddles or for just one day. For the first time, this year’s TOUR kicks off with PADDLE-A-THON on June 12 at a new location—the beautiful Childress Vineyards in Lexington, NC. Paddling days in June take place in Winston-Salem and are sponsored by WFDD. Paddling in July takes place in Wilkes, NC; and August is in Elkin, NC. Major sponsors of the TOUR are Indera Mills, Childress Vineyards, WFDD-FM and WKZL-FM. Additional support for the Tour comes Carolina Heritage Vineyard and Winery, Christine Rucker Photography, Davidson Country TRIP, Foothills Brewing, Get:Outdoors, Great Outdoor Provision Co. and Waterkeeper Alliance.
