CPAWS Manitoba Paddle Night


CPAWS Manitoba Paddle Night

September 7 2021

Get a taste of nature without leaving the city!

For just $5 you can paddle the Red River and learn how to help #KeepManitobaWild.

No boat required! It’s a great way to introduce yourself — or your kids — to paddling.

There will be canoes, kayaks, a dragon boat, paddleboards and safety equipment, all supplied by the Manitoba Paddling Association at a generously discounted rate. (Please note: A $1.84 processing fee will be added to each ticket.)

Meet us at the Manitoba Canoe and Kayak Centre at 80 Churchill Drive on Tuesday, September 7, 2021 and Tuesday, September 14, 2021. As there are limited spots available, register now to ensure your participation. The events will run from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. each evening.

“I liked seeing the outside, the view and the summer and having the kids get off screens and know that Canada is a very vast wilderness and not just metropolitan.”

— Debbie de Guzma, at Paddle Night 2019

About the CPAWS Manitoba Nature Club

CPAWS Manitoba’s Nature Club is designed to help Manitobans get outside, make new friends, and learn about the wonders of nature.

We’ve developed a wide range of programming and activities to help Manitobans of all ages and abilities enjoy the health and wellness benefits of nature.

Cancellation Policy

All Manitoba Paddling Association programs are subject to cancellation due to unsafe water conditions. We will notify registered participants by e-mail as soon as we are notified of a cancellation. We will issue refunds if the event is cancelled.

COVID-19 Protocols

All participants are expected to self-screen for COVID-19 prior to the event and to stay home if they are symptomatic or have risk factors such as an exposure.

Masks are not required for outdoor recreational activities, however masks are recommended when a social distance of 2 metres cannot be maintained.

Safety Protocols

CPAWS Manitoba takes the safety of all program participants seriously.

All CPAWS Manitoba staff members have cleared a criminal record and vulnerable sector background check with the Winnipeg Police Department.

All CPAWS Manitoba staff members voluntarily disclose that they have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19. We adhere to all public health recommendations and guidelines.

CPAWS policy requires that at least one person leading programming that may involve children must be certified in first aid. This applies to staff or to volunteers.

This programming was made possible thanks to the generous support of The Winnipeg Foundation and The Conservation Trust, a Manitoba Climate and Green Plan Initiative delivered by the Manitoba Habitat Heritage Corporation.

Help Keep Manitoba Wild


CPAWS Manitoba has helped establish 23 parks and protected areas thanks to people like you.

With your help, we can protect half our lands and waters for future generations of people and wildlife.
