We’re here to get you out on the water on people-powered boats and boards. Come to us for boating and social events, summer camps, races…. Join us on “Sonoma County’s Longest Park”: the Petaluma River. Visit our Facebook page , find information on The Floathouse, a board and boat rental center planned for Petaluma’s turning basin, and look into plans for a 2nd facility, the Community Boathouse downriver.  Let’s make every day “A Day on The River”!

Spring Petaluma River Cleanup @ Petaluma Marina
May 27 @ 9:00 am – 1:00 pm
Spring Petaluma River Cleanup @ Petaluma Marina | Petaluma | California | United States

Join others in the community to clean up the Petaluma River, our “longest park”. Because the Petaluma River is a tidal slough, all sorts of things wash into it during the winter rains. Help recycle these things properly by getting your feet wet (and muddy) with like-minded citizens. It’s a fun event, and you’ll be provided with food and water for your trouble. Bring boots and gloves!
