Clean River Alliance "Fun Raiser" with Sol Horizon

Bring your whole family to the third annual Clean River Alliance Fun Raiser. Dance party, spaghetti sauce cook-off contest, and silent auction. Proceeds from this benefit will go towards the purchase a heavy-duty truck, to replace the aging vehicle now hard at work removing trash from the Russian River watershed. Dance beneath towering redwoods to the high-energy, positive sounds of Sol Horizon, twice voted “Best Reggae Band” in the North Bay by the NorBay readers poll. Cast your vote for Best Sauce in the spaghetti sauce cook-off contest, place your bids on silent auction treasures, and enjoy outdoor games for kids of all ages.

Founded in 2014 by Forestville resident Chris Brokate, the mission of Clean River Alliance is to remove trash from the Russian River watershed and to educate citizens about the problem of trash in our waters by creating more public cleanup events. Clean River Alliance is a fiscally sponsored project of Russian Riverkeeper.

You too can be a contestant in the spaghetti sauce cook-off! Entry forms are available at the Rio Nido Roadhouse, or by visiting Rio Nido Roadhouse on Facebook.

 Teen Trek 2017

Teen Trek 2017

Russian River Teen Trek (12-14 years of age)

Spend four days on the Russian River learning how to paddle a kayak, camping out under the stars, and more!

The Russian River Teen Trek offers a special opportunity for youth ages 12-14 to explore the natural world from the unique perspective of a boat paddling down the Russian River. Our experienced educators will guide youth in learning new skills centered on safely paddling themselves down the river and studying the rich flora and fauna of our watershed, all the while building a team experience through shared challenges and explorations on the water.

No prior experience necessary, though we do ask that participants have a certain level of comfortability with being in and around water.

LandPaths has camping gear and boats to lend as needed.  We will ask you what gear you need to borrow upon registration

Russian River Deep Paddle    October 6, 7, 8, 2018

Join us on a three day paddle down the lower stretches of the Russian River. At this time of year the river meanders slowly through willows and redwoods passing cormorants, river otters, harbor seals, and osprey. TrekSonoma can think of no better way to foster a love for Sonoma County than getting to know our river intimately. We will begin our paddle in Forestville and end three days later in Jenner. Each night gather to eat deliciously prepared food, tell stories around a fire and sleep under the stars.
