Deerfield Fest Membership Drive and Silent Auction!

Posted: 09/11/2021
By: Evan Stafford

Deerfield Fest traditionally provides our community with an opportunity to reflect on this much-loved stretch of whitewater, as well as the important stewardship work that American Whitewater has, and continues to do in the northeast. From our recent expansion of flow releases supporting whitewater recreation on the Mongaup River (NY) to our work on improving and maintaining release schedules in the Black River Basin (Black, Beaver, and Moose Rivers) to our recent court win establishing whitewater boating as a designated and existing use protected under the Clean Water Act on the Green River (VT),  American Whitewater has had a ton of success in the Northeast and looks forward to continuing that success into the future with your support.


We’re sad to not gather in a traditional festival setting this year on the Deerfield! However, we hope that you continue to recreate on the rivers we’ve worked so hard for you to find flows on and provide safe access to. Our natural landscapes have offered such a great and essential refuge over the past several months and American Whitewater needs your membership support now, more than ever to continue this important work!


If you normally renew your membership at Deerfield Fest, please renew again today! Folks who Join or Renew will be entered to win a Kokatat Om Drytop ($549 value!). Write “Deerfield” in the membership form comments to be entered! For folks who renewed in June through the present, you’ll be automatically entered to win based on if you live in a Northeastern state. We appreciate your membership support so much. The membership drawing will be held on September 22nd.


In an effort to raise more funds for our Stewardship work in the northeast, we also have a super stout 2021 Deerfield Online Auction that just went live. Go check it out and bid on some fantastic gear from our amazing Partners (huge thanks to all our Industry Partners!!!). Auction ends on Wednesday, September 15th at 8 p.m. EST.
