Congaree National Park Paddle
Come paddle the swamp where the Catawba-Wateree River meets the Congaree River! This flat-water paddle is a great change of pace at the southernmost extent of our basin.

One of the businesses that very much utilizes water for the local economy is hosting a fundraiser that will include a great 90s music cover band (Gump Fiction) and a raffle for Triple C's craft beer for a year!
All proceeds benefit CRF: $10 for the concert includes one raffle entry; additional raffle entries are $5
