Join us to celebrate protection of the integrity of the Peace River Valley at the 11th annual Paddle for the Peace.

Bring your canoes, kayaks or rafts and participate in a leisurely paddle down a portion of the incredibly scenic Peace River Valley, presently under threat by the unnecessary Site C dam.

Even if you don’t have watercraft, please feel free to join us on shore at the launch or takeout.

Registration:
In person, at the event 9:00 to 11:30 a.m.
$10 per person; 13 and under free.

Launch:
12 noon at the Halfway River Bridge on Hwy 29 between Fort St. John and Hudson’s Hope, BC.

Free hot breakfast:
9 – 11 a.m. at the launch site.

Take out:
Bear Flat on Hwy 29, approximately 1.5 hr paddle downstream of the launch site. (There is a shuttle bus available to bring you back to get your vehicle from the launch site.)

Sponsors:
This event is organized jointly by the Peace Valley Environment Association and West Moberly First Nations, and sponsored by Y2Y, Patagonia and Tides Foundation.

Join us!
This is a wonderful opportunity to gather with hundreds of others who appreciate and want to protect the Peace River Valley.
