Our partners, Hanson Aggregates graciously provide a watercraft (kayak or canoe) if you do not have one as well as breakfast and lunch! Drinking water, closed-toed shoes, sunscreen, and a hat are recommended.

Volunteers will check in and be given breakfast between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. at the parking lot behind the McDonalds at 4121 Blue Ridge Rd. Raleigh, NC 27612. Afterwards, watercrafts will be provided if you do not have one and we will take off down the creek. You may bring and use your own paddle craft (motorized craft are not allowed).
