Kayak for Conservation

A Fundraiser for the Tennessee River Gorge

THIS IS THE INFORMATION FROM THE 2005 EVENT; STAY TUNED FOR FUTURE EVENT DETAILS!

The Tennessee River Gorge possesses great ecological and historical value, and the best view is from water level. Kayakers often encounter great blue herons, river otters and an occasional Red-tailed Hawk. The trip will begin at Suck Creek and end 8 miles downstream a Raccoon Mountain. Don’t worry, the current does half the work!

A “Post Paddle Party” will be held at Rock/Creek Down Under and will include a silent auction of gear and prizes donated by some of Chattanooga’s finest supporters. There is a $35 per person fee for the event, $30 for current members of the Tennessee River Gorge Trust, and space is limited. To reserve your spot, call the Tennessee River Gorge Trust today at 423.266.0314.

ALL proceeds from this event go to support the mission of the Tennessee River Gorge trust in protecting and restoring the wilderness areas of the Tennessee River Gorge.

Special thanks to the City of Chattanooga’s OutVenture, who will be providing gear and shuttle service, as well as to the volunteers and members of the Tennessee River Gorge Trust and their efforts to protect this special wild place.
