10th Annual Paddle for the Peace
Join us to celebrate maintaining the integrity of the Peace River Valley at this unique event. 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.
Free 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.)
Free BBQ Lunch: At the takeout site at Bear Flat.
This event is organized and sponsored jointly by the Peace Valley Environment Association, West Moberly First Nations and the Halfway River First Nations.
It is a wonderful opportunity to gather with hundreds of others who appreciate the Peace River Valley for a paddle down the river. Safety boats will accompany the paddlers.
