Finally, we have been able to officially begin our work on developing our blueways and mapping them in a way that will reach paddlers living outside our area to come visit. Lisa is hard at work on the website and we are working on our interactive map. Andy is plotting the channel centerlines and I'm gathering the vital information that goes into the trail descriptions. We are underway with the design of our launches and interpretive signs. We'll keep you posted as things develop. Meanwhile check out the fall calendar and give Doug a shout if you have any ideas or want to participate in the fun!

Almost forgot, DCR (Department of Conservation and Recreation) paddled the Banister recently and it does qualify for the Scenic Rivers designation . The Meherrin will be reviewed in Sept after having been delayed from July due to the heat. We'll keep you posted on that to.
