DNA of a River Workshop

  • Allegheny Outfitters 36 Clark Street Warren United States (map)

DNA of a River Workshop

Duration: 1 hour, Cost: $5

Our waterways are always changing. This workshop will focus on what makes up our local creeks and river, how water reacts to those things, and how to decipher and recognize the safest path.

Utilizing our "river in a bag", we'll have a hands-on discussion covering how water reacts to river features (downstream and upstream V, eddy, eddy lines, hydraulics, holes, seams and standing waves, etc); and  hazards - both natural (sweepers, deadheads, strainers), and man-made (bridges, low-head dams, dredged areas). We'll focus on how these affect the paddling experience and how they change at different water levels.

Registration required. Sign up here.
