Apalachicola Riverkeeper's Eco-Educational Outings

Explore your river and basin with us! Our volunteer-led eco-educational outings are fun and memorable.  We hike in the spring and fall. We kayak year-round. Group size is limited, and registration is required. Our skilled volunteer trip leaders enjoy introducing people to the river system. Wearing life jackets are required for paddling trips. Some loaner kayaks may be available for paddling trips.

Paddlers and hikers need to bring:  water; snacks/lunch; sunscreen; and hat. Paddlers, please wear clothing that won’t weigh you down if it gets wet. Synthetics like nylon blends are best. No jeans or boots.

Trips are donation based. Schedule subject to change based on river and weather conditions.


Please contact to register and include a telephone number. Registration closes Thursdays prior to trip. Outings are limited in size and frequently fill up, so advanced registration is recommended. Meet-up directions and other details are emailed to registrants the week of the trip.
