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.
In person, at the event 9:00 to 11:30 a.m.
$10 per person; 13 and under free.
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.
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.)
This event is organized jointly by the Peace Valley Environment Association and West Moberly First Nations, and sponsored by Y2Y, Patagonia and Tides Foundation.
This is a wonderful opportunity to gather with hundreds of others who appreciate and want to protect the Peace River Valley.
