People and their pups are paddling up Fort Bragg's lazy Noyo River on Sunday Oct 11th as a fund raiser for MCDOG’s Project Groundcover. Bear and Aften - the dogs of Liquid Fusion Kayaking are hosting the ‘Dog Paddle’ as a benefit for MCDOG’s project to grow groundcover that can stand up to the heavy dog park usage.
A $20 donation per seat gets you and your pup a 30-45 minute Dog Paddle in a tandem sea kayak on the Noyo River. The fun starts at the Dolphin Isle Marina, 32399 Basin St, Fort Bragg, just a mile from the Pacific Ocean. Dog Paddles start at 1 and go until 3 pm, but come early to enjoy lunch at the marina’s deli, and hang out on the deck with other dog-loving people and their four-legged friends. We are looking forward to a special guest appearance by Hairy Putter - Mendocino County's canine ambassador.
Did you know that California Coastal Cleanup Day is in the Guiness Book of World Records for "the largest garbage collection?"
This year Liquid Fusion Kayaking is hosting a new cleanup venue for Mendocino County. We are doing an on-water clean-up of the Noyo River in Fort Bragg. Join the team from Liquid Fusion Kayaking on Saturday September 19 from 9-noon for a fun morning of paddling and cleaning up our environment. By picking up trash from the Noyo River, we be making the Noyo River a cleaner, healthier environment as well as preventing trash from being washed out into the ocean.
Check out the California Coastal Commission's page - what's so bad about marine debris to find out why getting the trash out of our waterways is so important.
We hope that you will join us or participate in one of the other Coastal Cleanups being held across the state. Please call (707) 962-1623 for more information on our on-water Cleanup of the Noyo River or to sign up to help.
