Join the Elkspedition Flotilla and Enjoy a Free Picnic
Free Event Celebrates the Elk River
Join West Virginia Rivers Coalition at Coonskin Park in Charleston, WV for a celebration of the Elk River on Labor Day, September 4, 2017, during our Elkspedition Picnic & Paddle!
On Labor Day afternoon you’re invited to join a flotilla of kayaks, canoes, rafts or anything else that floats for a celebratory 3.5-mile paddle on the Elk River. After the float, paddlers and community members will be treated to a good old-fashioned BBQ picnic, featuring live music with one of Charleston’s favorite bands, The Dread Pirate, Roberts! Bring your own boat and register for the flotilla and picnic here.
Paddler check-in begins at 12pm at the Columbia Pavilion at Coonskin Park; we’ll be shuttling you to the put-in. The picnic will follow immediately at approximately 3:30pm. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
The Elkspedition Picnic & Paddle is part of the Waterkeeper Alliance’s SPLASH event series and benefits the West Virginia Headwaters Waterkeeper, a program of West Virginia Rivers Coalition.
