We were so thrilled to take part in the 4th Annual Paddle Splash event, hosted by NorCal SUP at the beautiful Lake Natoma. The festival is a family-friendly event with clinics, fun and competitive races, and an overall great time with proceeds benefiting the NorCal SUP Groms club, a 501c(3) charity.

Portside Paddle was invited to give a talk on plastic pollution and protecting our watersheds to the paddlers and lead a “Pick and Paddle” event along the beach. These kids were awesome! In 20 minutes we collected beverage containers, plastic toys, and so many cigaretteĀ butts!
