Catawba Riverkeeper is bringing all of our outdoor recreation programs under one umbrella called Blue Heron Adventures!

With Blue Heron Adventures, you can:

  • Rent a kayak, canoe, or standup paddleboard
  • Go on a guided tour in different parts of our watershed
  • Learn a new skill through classes and private lessons
  • Hike to a swimming hole…and more!

As always, proceeds from recreation programs directly support the Riverkeeper’s work to protect our waterways.

When you rent a kayak or book a tour with Blue Heron Adventures you are helping Catawba Riverkeeper educate more children and adults about our watershed, host more cleanups and community science programs, and conduct more water quality monitoring programs.
