What we're about

If you are looking for a group to enjoy paddling adventures on the water or learn new skills, we are the club for you! North Texas River Runners is a chapter of the Arkansas Canoe Club and is affiliated with the American Canoe Kayak SUP Raft Rescue Association (ACA). We are about helping our members develop their kayaking skills while discovering the joys of outdoor water adventures. Our members include all levels of ACA certified instructors as well as regular folks who love being on the water. We do both white water and flat water adventures and welcome everyone from beginning paddlers to advanced white-water daredevils. Our club was formed in 1986. To become an official member of the club, the dues are $25 for individual or family, but to join on meetup and receive notification of events there is no charge. We do request that those who attend 3 or more events pay the nominal dues to become an official member of the club.

Adopt-A-Stream Paddling Clean up with Grand Prarie

Come join us with an event that will get you on the water while helping the environment. The YWLA Adopt-A-Stream Clean up is both land and water based. If you love to paddle it is a great chance to improve your skills. If you have a boat, bring it. If you need a boat, let us know as their may be rental boats or loaners available. YOU MUST PREREGISTER WITH THE CITY OF GRAND PRAIRIE FOR THIS EVENT. (see the link below) Lunch will be provided to all registered volunteers. The Trinity River and its tributaries run through Grand Prairie, providing habitat for our native wildlife and recreation through fishing and boating opportunities. Unfortunately, these streams can become polluted with litter. The majority of this litter is made up of plastic bottles, plastic bags, and Styrofoam. This litter is called 'floatables' because the majority of it floats on the surface of the water creating an eyesore for the community. You can do your part by not littering and by assisting with stream cleanups during the stream cleanup season which runs from mid-October through mid-March each year. Please meet near the basketball court at the intersection of Hardy Road and Avenue D (2201 Hardy Road). Long pants, layers appropriate for weather, and close-toed shoes are recommended. Sunscreen and insect repellent are also recommended. Volunteers are asked to preregister.
