WATERSHED AWARENESS | Standup Paddleboarding | Filmmaking | CONSERVATION


We work with the area's top educators to offer ground-breaking curriculum that inspires conservation and engages youth participants.



First Waves uses standup paddleboarding as a conduit to introduce our youth to the joy and importance of watersheds.  An understanding of watersheds has been reported to lead to higher awareness and engagement in conservation efforts
