Opening Yosemite to Paddling Update

The Adventure Sports Journal just posted a nice update on AW's efforts to open Yosemite National Park to paddlers. Check it out here:
Paddle Potential in National Parks | Adventure Sports Journal

From the article:

According to Steindorf, paddling down Yosemite’s rivers is completely appropriate. “Yosemite is one of only three parks in the country that prohibits the public from exploring our rivers by kayak, canoe, and raft,” said Steindorf. (Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks are the other two.) “Paddling is human-powered, low-impact, quiet, non-consumptive, skill-based, and Wilderness-compliant. In short, it is exactly the kind of activity and experience that the Park system was created to foster.”

American Whitewater's website and river stewardship projects are funded by paddlers. Please join, renew, or make a donation to help us protect whitewater rivers in Colorado and nationwide.

ThisNational parks pass makes me laugh because of the boating ban. My wife gave a ranger a hard time in Yellowstone for it.
