"Low Impact, Big Results." That's the slogan for this Pennsylvania-based non-profit working to restore and protect the health of rivers, streams, lakes, and wetlands through hands on stewardship and education. Almost exclusively using non-motorized boats in their efforts, Paddle Without Pollution utilizes volunteers of all paddling abilities to paddle into ecologically sensitive or shallow areas and clean waters that can't typically be reached by motorized boat or land-based cleanups.
Paddle Without Pollution was founded in 2011, and their 2012 campaign, "Bridges Over Troubled Waters," promises to be a year filled with cleanups, stewardship initiatives, and partnering with youth to educate and raise awareness about the issues that plague our water's health. Paddle Without Pollution was recently awarded an ACA Club Fostered Stewardship (CFS) Grant to help fund their efforts and clean Pennsylvania's waterways.
