Sunday, July 24, 2022

Join us for a Diversify Whitewater Community River Float on the Deerfield River in Charlemont, MA on Sunday, July 24 from 2:30pm – 6:00pm ET. Participants will learn the basics of water safety and paddling techniques for rafting and enjoy a day floating down the Deerfield River. No experience or equipment is necessary to participate.

We will meet at Zoar Outdoor in Charlemont, MA and then head to the launch site together to begin the float. All groups will be guided by river professionals and expert paddlers. Refreshments will be provided for participants during the river float. This event is 100% FREE for all attendees! Participants age 5 and up are welcome.

The mission of Diversify Whitewater (DW) is to promote Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in paddlesports by removing the barriers that exist for Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC), and Allies in kayaking, canoeing, rafting, and stand up paddling by holding free community paddling events.

Registration for the event is required; registration opens on June 19. If you register for this event and cannot make your commitment, please call Zoar Outdoor (413-339-4010) as soon as possible to open your spot to folks on the waitlist.

We can’t wait to paddle with you!
