Promoting Conservation Through Recreation

Greenway Network

Tons of trash cleaned from rivers

Our core goal at Greenway Network is to bring people to the river. We’ve found that the more people experience rivers and streams, the more they love them. The more they learn about them. The more they do to conserve them.

Race for the Rivers helps us with this goal: bringing people to the river. From participating in the race to taking a free paddle ride in our voyager class canoes, we strive to get everyone on, in, or near the water. And people of all ages can come to the festival!
