Winter Paddling Event #2

We will meet at the public boat ramp next to Hanson Riverside Park (click here for the map) outside of West Columbia, TX at 9 a.m., and paddle upriver picking up trash in the river and on the bank. Bags will be provided, and we’ll head to a local watering hole afterward for some lunch.
