Volunteers make kayaking & canoeing the Tualatin River accessible by bringing boats and gear right to the launch site. You don't need to have a boat. You don't need to have a car to paddle the River anymore! Trained leaders teach basic paddle strokes and ensure safety on our slow moving River, SW of Portland.
