The Ohio River Foundation recently held its annual Great Ohio River Paddle event.

Approximately 130 participants gathered in Neville Saturday, July 18 and headed down river in groups. Each group had a guide who was able to share knowledge of the ecology and history of the river.

Participants traveled to New Richmond Saturday, with a stop for lunch at Point Pleasant. They camped in New Richmond and on Sunday they continued to Cincinnati.

The event gives participants an opportunity not only to have an enjoyable excursion, but to see the river up close and gain perspective on conservation issues. The event also serves as a fund-raiser for the Ohio River Foundation.

The foundation was founded in 2000 by a group of citizens concerned about the Ohio River. It's mission is to protect and restore the water quality and ecology of the Ohio River and its tributaries.
