Something in the Water

The water quality of the Cape Fear River was a major concern in 2017. There is no doubt that it will be an issue in 2018 as well. Rivers have long served farm and town as depositories for animal waste and chemical byproducts. Unfortunately, in the not so distant past this was more the rule than the exception. Things have changed for the better, though we obviously have a long way to go. Rivers, like other natural resources don't belong to a single entity or organization. They provide drinking water, recreation, and for those who spend enough time around or on them, something just as important, though less tangible. There's something about a river running free that provides a sense of peace and exhilaration all at once. Paddling on a river enables you to slow down and appreciate a resource that is much larger and wilder than any single individual or organization. For those who can appreciate this, it can inspire a sense of respect. That's why, in 2018, it's more important than ever to enable those who have not had the opportunity, a chance to engage with our rivers. Through intimate connection and respect we can build a sense of stewardship and ultimately conservation.
