Paddle To The Sea 2009
For 3-weeks and 234 miles, 250 paddlers, 100 paddle-a-thon sponsors, and hundreds more party-goers came together to raise awareness and foster better stewardship for the Tuolumne and Clavey Rivers. After high River flows threatened to postpone the first two whitewater legs of the journey, our paddlers tackled the Clavey and Wild & Scenic Tuolumne River with bravado, kicking off the first ever Tuolumne River Trust Paddle To The Sea!
The journey began May 15 with a kick-off concert at Mountain Sage in Groveland; coursed through the Central Valley where there was a welcome party in Waterford, paddler dinners hosted by Royal Robbins, and Green on the Stream in Modesto; and concluded with great fanfare at the Grand Finale party at Aquatic Park in San Francisco on June 6. Old and new Tuolumne River Trust members alike gained a renewed zest for protecting and restoring this beautiful River, and helped to raise over $10,000 for Tuolumne River Trust program work!
Whether you paddled, volunteered, were a sponsor, or came to a party, thank you for participating in this great success for the Tuolumne River! We hope to see you all next time...
