AW also attends several other events each year throughout the US. At events, AW seeks to increase memberships, raise funds for river stewardship work, improve visibility and communications with the community and to support our partners and proponents.
Over the years, AW has shifted away from running multiple events to running just Gauley Fest and Deerfield Fest and simply attending other events. This has allowed us to better focus on our core goal of river stewardship. We have fewer resources tied up in putting on events and we're now able to focus more of our resources on saving rivers. A win for rivers, and a win for the value of our supporter's funds.
American Whitewater is excited to attend the 17th Annual French Broad River Fest in Hot Springs, NC this May 2-4, 2014. Pick up your tickets today and come join us! AW will be there spreading the good word about our river stewardship programs and selling Memberships. We hope to see you there!
American Whitewater is proud to announce our March 2014 Volunteer of the Month: Don Perkins! Don was part of the rockstar crew that recently put on the National Paddling Film Fesitval (NPFF) in Kentucky. As many folks may know, NPFF is a great supporter of American Whitewater, raising several thousands dollars for our river stewardship work each year. Thanks for all the hard work, Don! In recognition of his work, Don will be receiving a custom Kokatat Woolcore Shirt!
