As a founding member of the Outdoor Alliance, the ACA continues to advocate for paddlers at the federal level.


FOIA Update:


Freedom of Information Act records requests are vital to the work of  Outdoor Alliance member organizations, and to the ability of the public to understand how management decisions are made for our public lands. In the aggregate, we believe that these rule changes would stifle the public’s right to understand how decisions are being made inside the Department of the Interior. Some modest changes to the regulations might be justified given the uptick of FOIA activity. However, given the centrality of transparency and accountability to an informed citizenry and our cherished tradition of self governance, we strongly suggest that DOI first explore some more modest, non-structural strategies to address the recent increase in the public’s interest in DOI’s important work.


ACA Mission

Founded in 1880, The American Canoe Association (ACA) is a national nonprofit organization serving the broader paddling public by providing education related to all aspects of paddling, stewardship support to help protect paddling environments, and sanctioning of programs and events to promote paddlesport competition, exploration, and recreation.
