Catherine and I will be paddling with the New River Conservancy for 6 miles along the South Fork of the New River in Ashe County, North Carolina, on Saturday, July 21. We are looking for you to help sponsor our paddle with a donation of $25 or more that will help the New River Conservancy keep the river clean and protected. We are excited that the New River Conservancy was able to recently obtain property for the New River State Park, Wagoner Road Access, that will open up a new significant back country hiking area in the park. This will have the largest trail system in Ashe County. Congratulations New River Conservancy and all the many donors that made this purchase possible! Our paddle will end at the Wagoner Road Access of New River State Park.
