Project: ReWard


Well, here we go.  PaddleBR’s Project ReWard has commenced.  With rain in the forecast and the water already high, what better Saturday to kick off our next major project? Read more…

Project ReWard


Project: ReWard

Several years ago, PaddleBR took on the challenge of turning a choked, unusable waterway called Bayou Fountain into a local paddlinfg destination.  Last year, we finally got to reap the full rewards of our efforts when the first BREC paddle launch was built and opened.  But one bayou and one improved launch is only the beginning.

Cleanup on Aisle Manchac!


For the last several years, one of the highlights of our schedule has been hosting Volunteer LSU guests for spring and fall cleanups.  We have a great time, and they keep coming back, too.  Last time, we did a land-based cleanup on the Litter Banks of Ward Creek and came out with another huge haul.  This time, they requested a paddle cleanup on Bayou Manchac, and we thought that was a great idea.

Winter Wood Work at the Wall


Well, the off-season is behind us, so time to catch up with a couple back-dated updates. With all the snow and ice and rain, we didn’t get to go out as much as we wanted, and there was the little matter of Nathaniel having to spend waaaay too long re-roofing his house.  (Did we mention the snow and ice and rain?  Even days with temperatures below the minimums required by the roofing materials, and this is Louisiana!)

Last Call for the Paddle-In Movie!


Movie Dock

We’ve completed the annual service on the PaddleBR Movie Dock.  The souvenirs are ready, and the themed snacks are coming together.  The fleet is staged and waiting for Saturday, and tickets have been sent out to everyone who filled out a ticket request.

Yep, we’re pretty much ready to go for our third-annual PaddleBR Paddle-In Movie.  And yet, we do still have a few spaces still available.  We have a small number of tickets left, and we have a handful of boats that have not yet been reserved.  We’re holding the ticket window open for any late registrations from Thursday’s Pumpkin Paddle Parade, but this is the last call before we finalize the fleet list and head count.  Don’t miss out.  Sign up today!

Paddle Up 3

After years of work and months of waiting, it was finally ribbon cutting weekend on Bayou Fountain.  It was a long time in coming, but it turned out very nice, indeed. Read more…

A Tree Today, A Ribbon Next Week


With the ribbon cutting for the paddle launch at Highland Road Park coming up next Sunday, we headed out in the rain to make sure everything was just right.  Now, all we need is for everyone to spread the word so we have a great turnout on the 15th.

But Wait, There’s More!


After the rush of September events, it was nice to get back to just another relaxing weekend of paddle trail maintenance on Bayou Fountain.  With the ribbon cutting for the launch coming up on October 15th, we want to make sure everything is just right. Read more…

We love having our Paddle-In Movies to say thanks to our PaddleBR members, whose support makes much of what we do possible, and this year we’re extra happy to be able to celebrate the opening this year of BREC’s first official paddle launch on the Bayou Fountain paddle trail at Highland Road Park.  Everyone is welcome, supporting member or “just” another paddler, we’d love to have you out there.

There is no charge or admission fee, but since space is limited and we have to pay the license fee based on attendance, please get your tickets in advance.  If you don’t have a canoe, kayak, or paddleboard of your own, you’re in luck!  We have put together a fleet of 15 canoes and almost as many kayaks just waiting to be reserved for your movie watching enjoyment, also completely free (but tickets required).  Your tickets will be delivered by email, with details about the event and contact information if you need to change anything.

We’re looking forward to an amazing movie night out in the middle of University Lake.

Last weekend was either leisurely or extremely full for us, depending on who you ask, but no matter who you ask, it was definitely cool (albeit in a metaphorical sense only). Read more…
