Shelby, NC 28152
+ Google Map
$5 – $15

Have you ever paddled by the light of the moon? Join our Broad Riverkeeper for a Moonlight paddle on the Broad River. As we go, our Broad Riverkeeper will talk about the history of the Broad River and the work that he does to protect it. This section is flat water, so should be easy going. We'll meet at Lake Houser at 8:00pm to run a shuttle and plan on putting in at 8:45pm, right around sunset. From there we'll paddle about 4.5 miles of river, ending up at the Boiling Springs Greenway to take out around 11:30pm. We have some boats, paddles, and pfds that you can reserve in advance, but you're also welcome to bring your own gear! Children and dogs are allowed, but must be supervised by a parent or guardian at all times.
