Our Annual Dinner Auction Will Be on April 18th, 2015! Excited? We are too!
Come get your feet wet at our Volunteer Orientation on February 5th, at the Good Shepherd Center in Seattle.
Benefits of volunteering at the WWTA Dinner Auction and attending the Volunteer Orientation:
Unlike Padrow Puffin, we don’t come with our own layer of protection. So what does happen when we immerse a human body in cold water? Join us at the Good Shepherd Center on the evening of January 22nd to find out! Class will start at 7:00pm (doors open at 6:30).
Join Karl Kohagen at the Good Shepherd Center on Thursday evening – January 22 – for the first of our 2015 Education Series classes. There’ll be a $300 value DOOR PRIZE (& an extra ticket for everyone who becomes a member or renews membership at this event!). And BONUS, Karl as a rep for Kokatat will show a new convertible dry suit/dry top with a flexible, waterproof zipper around the entire waist, creating an autonomous dry top and fully functional paddling pants. Unzipped, one piece becomes two. Zip them together and you’re back in full-body waterproof bliss. To save your place, register online today.
Since 2002, when WWTA first added detailed site information to our website, access to that information has been restricted to WWTA members. The thinking behind this was to encourage people to join our organization and support the water trail sites.
Now we are very excited to announce that all detailed online water trail site information will be OPEN TO ALL-COMERS as of January 2015!
Thank you for kicking off the giving season with such generosity on #GivingTuesday! Our goal for the month of December is a whopping $20,000, and we are well on our way, having raised $1262.33 in just one day. Thank you!! This goal will allow WWTA to start off the year strong, and in a good position to make commitments for the coming year.
What’s coming in 2015:
Coinciding with the Thanksgiving Holiday and the kickoff of the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday is a reminder that this season is also about giving back. We ask you to take a moment and MAKE A DONATION to Washington Water Trails Association. A gift to WWTA at this time of year ties in with our annual appeal and your support will make our organization stronger for our work in 2015.
Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Washington Water Trails Association.
We send our sincerest thanks and appreciation to all who attended our 2014 Fall Paddling Seminar – instructors, participants, volunteers – alike. We couldn’t have done it without each and every one of you. Bringing back classes as part of this 2-day event following a 5-year haitus has been a learning experience, one we’ll continue in 2015. Thank you to all who sent feedback, and to everyone else please let us know if you have ideas for next year’s event (firstname.lastname@example.org). Congratulations go out to Leslie Methe, winner of our raffle for EXPED’s Gemini II Tent!
Find out when you spend an informative Tuesday evening at the Good Shepherd Center where Spring Courtright will entertain you with a class on Packing for Multi-Day Paddling Trips. Join us on Tuesday evening (6:30 to 8:30 pm), September 23rd!
