Paddling to the sea

 • 

Jessie Raeder was an energetic high school student when a bitter dispute erupted over the use of chemicals to eradicate pike in Lake Davis in favor of native trout. Nowadays she’s director of Paddle to the Sea, a month long “paddle-a-thon” that begins in June and runs the 241-mile length the Tuolumne River from the Sierras to the San Francisco Bay. The goal: raise awareness and money for the river’s benefactor, the Tuolumne River Trust.

Paddle with the Salmon on the Tuolumne

A remarkable event happens every year along the Tuolumne River, but sadly, very few people know about it: Chinook salmon run up the river to their spawning grounds, and the canoes of the Tuolumne River Trust are there to meet them. You could join them this weekend.

From Mild to Wild

A regional effort to create a regional Bay Water Trail is bearing fruit with new funding for an integrated program of boat launches, education programs, and more. It’s time to get out on San Francisco Bay!
