Last night we rubbed elbows with the Gil's crew and Ninkasi for the High Water Party supporting American Whitewater. A full house of water-rec lovers sipped on Pacific Rim suds and won raffle prizes from us, Mountain Provisions, Indigo Creek Outfitters, and Jackson Kayaks.
American Whitewater is a national non-profit whose mission is to conserve and restore whitewater resources. They work to protect and restore rivers, monitor potential threats to whitewater river resources, publish information on conservation, and provide technical advice to local groups regarding river conservation. Most importantly, they aim to assure protection of whitewater rivers and the ability of the public to enjoy clean, free-flowing rivers, including waterways all over the Pacific Northwest.
