Paddle Without Pollution improves watersheds through 
community outreach, education, and direct action.

Paddle Without Pollution is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to restore and protect the health of rivers, streams, lakes, and wetlands through hands-on stewardship and education, thereby benefiting the region’s communities, economy, and quality of life. We operate with very little or no negative impact to the environment, using volunteers in kayaks and canoes to get into ecologically sensitive, shallow, and inaccessible areas that land-based cleanup crews cannot reach.


Did you know that, in the last five years, PWP has removed more than 50 tons of litter and illegally dumped debris from rivers, creeks, and lakes?
