"The best part about the symposium was being in a community of paddlers in a supportive atmosphere. I prefer solo paddling and getting away from the crowds but I was touched deeply by the positive energy of so many leave-no-trace, silent sports people."
"It was a HUGE benefit. I now have a wonderful base of knowledge to grow from…a huge list of things I can go home and practice. Have a much better understanding of the sport as a whole."
