Join Potomac Riverkeeper Network for this special RiverPalooza 2018 Women on the Water (WOW) Paddle Day to help us stand up for clean water! Women have always played a critical role as stewards of our water resources: the Waitaha people of New Zealand—a matriarchal culture dating back over 4,000 years—were known as the original “Water Bearers,” which has become an international movement of women dedicated to improving access to clean water for millions of people.

Clean water is critical to our survival and an interest we all share. When we learn to respect and fall in love with water, we stop taking it for granted. When we begin to recognize how important water is to our families, our community, and to our entire planet—we change our relationship to it and to each other. So come make a stand for clean water!

Paddlers will also enjoy a beautiful sunset from the river, one of the best times to see wildlife. Edwards Ferry has a large boat ramp that is a popular spot for smallmouth bass fishing, so feel free to bring a fishing pole (and be sure to have your fishing license!).
