The ACA is one of the largest, most active paddlesports organizations in the world. With over 50 million people paddling each year, there are a lot of different interests to represent. But one thing that all paddlers have in common is a vested interest in the health of our waters and environment.
While the ACA works to promote good on-water stewardship at an individual level, we also partner with or support other organizations working to create a healthier, more sustainable planet. This year alone, the ACA has written letters of support, commented on proposed federal legislation, and co-signed letters with other organizations on a variety of topics ranging from preserving roadless areas in Colorado to supporting the Clean Air Act, protecting the menhaden population, and more!
