I just read about the Androscoggin River Watershed Council‘s Source to Sea Trek-a-Thon in my latest AMC Conservation Update. I had never heard of this event; according to the website, it has been held for 10 years in a row. This is the first year that it is a “pledge event.” Participants are asked to raise money in support of 1) the event itself, and 2) the educational outreach programs.
The Source to Sea Trek-a-Thon is 4 days of paddling on the Androscoggin River, over 4 weekends. The ARWC has a Source to Sea Trek-a-Thon 2006 schedule on their website. It looks like you raise money to support paddling a section of the river on a particular day. I suppose you could do all 4 sections, or paddle the whole thing, too.
Sounds fun. I’m going to have to mark my calendar for next years event.
