Paddle Florida, Inc. is a non-profit organization that seeks to promote awareness of water conservation, wildlife preservation, restoration of springs and protection of waterways in Florida. In order to fulfill this mission, we stage paddling events in each of Florida's five water management districts. We hope to instill a 'water ethic' by showcasing Florida's vulnerable waterways. We hope that those who attend our events will come away with a deeper appreciation of our natural resources.
Established in 2007, we hosted our first trip on the Suwannee River Wilderness Trail in March, 2008. Since that time, we have expanded to host events on the Peace River, the Florida Keys, the Wekiva/St. Johns River and the Ochlockonee River.
