Tour De Tar Launches 10/8!

Pamlico-Tar Riverkeeper Jill Howell and Environmental Projects Coordinator Clay Barber will be launching their kayaks into the Tar River on Thursday, October 8th, for a journey we’re calling “Tour de Tar.”

Jill and Clay will paddle the length of the Tar, pulling out at High Water Social in Washington on October 17th. (If you’d like to welcome the paddlers back, they will be paddling in around noon. They’d love it if you paddled out to do the last little bit with them! More info to come.)

Jill and Clay are paddling the Tar not just to have a great adventure, but also to bring attention to the beauty of the river – and why it should be protected from threats. That’s what we do here at Sound Rivers – and if you’re interested in supporting our work, you can sponsor Jill and Clay’s paddle – all proceeds will benefit our Water Quality Monitoring Fund! Like many non-profits in 2020, we’re facing a funding shortfall due to canceled events, like our 35th Annual Oyster Roast. Your sponsorship of any amount will help us keep your Riverkeepers working for clean water, and working for you!

More info, including their musings, videos, tips, and answered questions, to be posted here during their trip! And on social media, and
