Since 1967, we've been devoted to enjoyment of the outdoors through canoeing, kayaking, biking, hiking and camping.
We meet monthly (except in December) from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at the Benjamin L. Hooks Central Library, 3030 Poplar, Memphis, TN 38111. See the events calendar on right side for meeting dates and for other trips and events.
What we do
Families, singles, young, experienced or first-time paddlers enjoy a variety of trips, volunteer events, and activities in a friendly group environment. Our paddling adventures are usually Class A, 1 or 2 and occasionally Class 3. Events may include biking, hiking or other activities Out of town trips include both Car/ RV and primitive camping. Day trips in the Memphis area are usually within 1 hour drive and may involve a short shuttle if paddling downstream in a local river.
