50 Years of American Whitewater Journals Online!

Asheville, NC — American Whitewater, the nations leading advocacy group for preservation and protection of whitewater river resources, announces a 50-year online archive of American Whitewater Journals available on their web site, www.americanwhitewater.org.

The archive chronicles the history of whitewater paddlesport beginning with the first publication in 1954. From homemade boats to today's hi-tech designs, from before Glen Canyon Dam was built to the first Tallulah releases, and from backyard rain gauges to river level emails. These archives document the development and growth of whitewater-based adventure travel both at home and abroad and conservation measures that have helped to save critical resources for a future generation of paddlers. As a celebration of American Whitewater’s 50th Anniversary, the archive is available for public enjoyment through the remainder of the year, at which time it will become an American Whitewater member benefit.

Mark Singleton, Executive Director of American Whitewater, states; “A special thank you goes out to Eric Bessette for work on the archive search tools, to Hensley-Elam & Associates for generous in-kind contributions and to all the volunteers and staff over the past 50 years who have contributed to American Whitewater’s success."

Founded in 1954, American Whitewater is a national organization with a mission "to conserve and restore America’s whitewater resources and to enhance opportunities to enjoy them safely." American Whitewater is a membership organization representing a broad diversity of individual whitewater enthusiasts, river conservationists, and more than 100 local paddling club affiliates across America. The organization is the primary advocate for the preservation and protection of whitewater resources throughout the United States, and connects the interests of human-powered recreational river users with ecological and science-based data to achieve the goals within its mission.
