Mission Statement

Our desire is do create tourism for our counties, cities, state and jobs relating to boating via canoe, kayak, or motor boats which has evolved into campsites every ten miles and new outfitters to accommodate the outdoor interests thus generated as well as combat obesity. We have 5 events on the state calendar this year and want to expand this via profits obtainable form an annual triathlon we have - this year April 30, 2011 which takes aminimum of 90 vlunteers to run and is better suited at 110 volunteers. We used last year's profits to ourchase items we would not have to rent again and again - tents, table, igloo's - and to pay to reprint a Guidebook we were out of months previously.

Description

We have at 631 miles the longest doable river trail in the USA, and due to our success with that, have 'adopted' several other waterways in Alabama to enhance them as well. We have a Board of 12 and expand with each adoption; a cross section of fine individuals statewide. With this success we have been instrumental in the opening of two new boat liveries, inspired two entrepeneurs to begin matina plans, and are have provided grants to open new boat gas fuel places on one river, so far.

Would you recommend Alabama Scenic River Trail?

by Amber A. (May 9, 2012)
sounds like it is a beautiful place and I love all the recreational activities that you have to offer. I love canoeing and kayaking and motor boats, have done it all my life. It would be agreat opportunity and I've really wanted to be able to do something to give back to the community and it would be good for me physically, mentally, and spirtually. Amber
