San Diego CoastKeeper Non-Profit Announcement for Quarter 3 Paddlers Pledge

August 14, 2017 Cali Paddler


San Diego CoastKeeperCali Paddler is excited to announce San Diego CoastKeeper is the newest recipient of the Paddle Pledge.

For those of us who paddle, whether it’s on a bay or lake, on a river or out in the giant blue ocean we know how important clean water is, not only to us but to the rest of the environment. As a community of paddlers, we are aware of the problems our waterways face when it comes to pollution. My home turf(water) is Mission Bay in San Diego. Anyone who knows San Diego knows about the trouble Mission Bay has had over the years with pollution. Nothing like being out on the bay in a canoe our on a SUP and thinking to yourself, “I’ll be fine as long as I don’t fall in”. That’s not the way I want to paddle. That’s why CaliPaddler is proud to partner with San Diego CoastKeeper.
