#Tour De Tar

Pamlico-Tar Riverkeeper Jill Howell and Environmental Projects Coordinator Clay Barber launched their kayaks into the Tar River on Thursday, October 8th, for a journey called “Tour de Tar.”

Jill and Clay paddled the length of the Tar, pulling out at High Water Social in Washington on October 17th.

Jill and Clay paddled 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!
