As the rain continues to fall we want to remind those of you with an adventurous side that it is times like these the Trinity River is the most dangerous for recreation. While those who are experienced with volatile water conditions might leap at these opportunities, novices should remain patient until conditions are more stable and predictable. We recommend renting from Backwoods kayak and canoe rental or Aloha Paddleboards at Panther Island Pavilion once things settle down a bit on the river.

In addition, you might have noticed all of the trash that has collected in the Trinity River since it first started raining earlier this week. We want to remind everyone that this trash was not actually dumped into the river, it started on the streets. As the rain water washes down the storm drains it takes all of the litter along the roads and sidewalks with it and it ends up in the Trinity River. In order to keep our waterways clean we all need to do our part to ensure all litter makes it in to trash receptacles instead of the ground. We encourage you to join the folks at Reverse Litter, which is wonderful group working to keep our waterways beautiful.
