3. Sustainability and access to water
We know that access to water is important for all paddlers, so whether it’s lobbying for new access points, for waterways to be opened up, coordinating water releases with local authorities – we are at the front of all these conversations.
Sustainability of our waterways is important for all paddlers. That is why we work with Clubs to advocate with local and state governments to ensure the quality of the paddling environment is maintained and improved.
Safety out on our waterways is vital. We advocate and liaise with authorities around safety issues (such as PFD use) and are your voice to governments on issues that impact our sport and recreation.
We support your Club. As part of our community, your Club has access to local, state and federal grants that we support. The funding is often used for Club facility or equipment upgrades that benefit you and your fellow Club members and make your Club more vibrant and sustainable.
