More about the event:

Regatta is an opportunity for neighbors to embrace this historically "under-loved" waterway. Throughout the years the Columbia Slough Watershed Council has worked to create partnerships with local government, businesses, community members, and environmental interests to help recognize and promote the Slough as a regional amenity and recreational destination. Before and after paddling, participants can visit with local environmental and water-based organizations, enjoy hands-on nature activities and live music.
