Paddle boarder rallying for clean water at the Baltimore Floatilla

2nd Annual Baltimore Floatilla – raising awareness for a healthy harbor

The 2nd Annual Baltimore Floatilla is happening on June 10, 2017.  Tickets and registration are now available on the Baltimore Floatilla’s website.  The event is a 5 mile paddle along the waterfront, gathering mid way in the heart of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, where we will raise our signs and our voices in support of clean water and a healthy harbor in Baltimore.  Check out my post detailing my experiences at the 2016 Baltimore Floatilla, as well as my short YouTube video covering last year’s event.  I hope to see you there!  Clean it up, Hon!
