Paddle in the City · 2018 Spring River Cleanup

May 19, 2018 12:00 pm @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join us for first River Cleanup along the Scioto River to start the 2018 paddle season. Participants can join the HERO crew for a guided paddle through the heart of downtown Columbus and the award winning Scioto Mile in a kayak or canoe or paddle board.

Once past the urban landscape, we will enter the Scioto Audubon peninsula and nature preserve to take in the beautiful spring colors. After we reach the Scioto Audubon Park river recreation area, we will begin the clean up.

Participants can collect garbage and debris from their boats or choose to exit the water and clean up on shore around the dock area. This is participation by choice, so participants should only collect what they are comfortable with cleaning up.

After the clean up concludes, all participants are invited to the volunteer appreciation party hosted at CD 102.5 Big Room Bar on Front Street downtown to enjoy a happy hour sponsored by Pacifico.

As part of HERO USA’s community outreach program, Paddle in the City, we will be offering guided kayak and canoe paddles down one of the most scenic portions of the Olentangy and Scioto Rivers throughout the summer. All guides are certified instructors.
