Sierra Club/John Muir Chapter
The River Touring Section's purposes are: 1) To coordinate paddling trips , mostly in Wisconsin. We have about 45 trips per year, late March through late October, on both quiet-water and white-water rivers, guided by volunteer leaders. A complete trip list is published on our website. 2) To promote on-the-water safety and improve paddling skills. We hold teaching clinics for beginning whitewater and quiet water paddlers in May/June of each year. 3) To support river conservation organizations. We give financial support to the work of the River Alliance of Wisconsin , American Rivers , and American Whitewater. 4) To facilitate communication among members of RTS. In late January we send each member an annual meeting report, a current list of the section's members with addresses and phone numbers, and a preview list of the trips planned for the year.
