Team Building and Conservation Excursions

Glide along reed-lined shores then listen to the story of a resurgent waterway including discussion on this innovative Oxbow Bypass project from a Napa Flood District representative. Paddlers have opportunity to help sustain the Napa River's environmental renaissance by learning to identify non-native, invasive plants and then properly removing them from planted areas. Removal of invasive plant species is one of the most effective ways to ensure desired native plants flourish, which keeps the waterways healthy.
