South River Days Celebration

It's summertime!  Well, we may have a few more weeks until the official start of summer, but the Federation is excited to announce that this years South River Days celebration will be graciously hosted by the Hillsmere Community Association. 

On Saturday, June 27th, please join us for a great morning paddle followed by a summer potluck picnic, so break out your favorite summer recipe.  This is also the celebration of the Membership Campaign that started on the release of the South River Watershed Report Card on April 21st.  Over the past three months, the Federation has been growing it's membership through volunteer events, the Great Give, and now the South River Days.  If you haven't renewed your membership yet, we hope you will consider making your gift today.  All of your support goes towards healing the South River.

Now, on to the business of the kayak trip.  We will launch kayaks promptly at 10:00 a.m., so we ask all kayakers to arrive between 9:30 and 10:00 to unload and get ready.  The trip will last approx. an hour and a half and the kayak leaders will take you on a eco tour of Hillsmere and Duvall Creek.  

After the kayak trip, we will enjoy a summer potluck picnic.  The Federation will supply the burgers and brats, you just need to bring your favorite side dish or dessert.  We will have coolers with ice for items that need to be kept cold.  Just a reminder that the Hillsmere community beach does not allow dogs on the beach.  Please be considerate and leave your furry friends at home. 

This is a day of celebration, so we hope all of you can make it out to Hillsmere for either the kayak, picnic or BOTH!
