What we're about

Meet other local Paddlers to talk about local rivers, creeks, and lakes and to plan paddling trips. Boaters of all levels and type are welcome!

Las Cruces Paddling Group provides this site as a public service. With any outdoor adventure, "survival" is hardly enough. You should always be over-prepared for what you expect to encounter. This means making correct and informed decisions on your clothing and gear, among other things, and an accurate assessment of your skills. Since situations always change, it is your personal responsibility to ensure that you are safe, no matter what may have been suggested from the information provided here. You, and you alone, are responsible for your safety and preparedness. You are participating at your own risk
