First Saturday Seminars
Get thinking!

On the first Saturday of each month, we host a FREE educational seminar on a Cape Fear River related topic.  Subjects range from environmental sustainability to the river’s role in the Civil War; from the history of Wilmington’s waterfront to our local ecology and neighbors. We provide a scrumptious pancake breakfast and coffee for free at every First Saturday Seminar. Come and meet other river enthusiasts, learn something new, and enjoy a great breakfast.

Second Saturday Clean-Ups
Get your hands dirty!

We organize watershed clean-ups on the second Saturday of each month. We pull trash and debris from our urban streams from shore or by boat—whatever it takes to keep our river clean and have some fun.  Each year, our volunteers collect over 15,000 pounds of trash from our watershed.To make your region a cleaner, healthier place to live, participate regularly in our watershed clean-ups!

Third Saturday Paddles
Get on the River!

Every third Saturday of the month from March to November, we host a paddle on a beautiful creek or river in our watershed. Paddles focus on history, ecological importance or scenic beauty, and all of them are spectacular.  Members may rent a canoe or kayak from our fleet for a $15.If you want to get out on our region’s waterways with a great group of fun folks, paddling with Cape Fear River Watch is the way to go!  Join us next month…and bring a friend!
