We are very happy to announce that our Green Paddle for Waterway Conservation goes to Friends of the Pecatonica River Foundation! This award is given annually to an individual or organization that has made an outstanding contribution to paddlesports by protecting America's waterways.

The Friends of the Pecatonica River Foundation (FPRF) was founded in 2009 to improve the quality of the Pecatonica River in Illinois and to acquire and develop access points for paddlers and conduct paddling instruction and events. The group has worked with county, state and Federal agencies to acquire land for non-motorized boat launch sites, picnic areas, and hauled tons of trash from the river. They also developed two postcard booklets showing historic pictures of the river and town to raise funds to continue their river restoration and access efforts!
