Paying for Human-Powered River Access: the Debate Continues 

River Management Roundtable
Dec. 14, 2021 | 3:30 - 4:30 EST

This month, we will learn about a recent study in Tennessee that addresses an interest to pay for new and refurbished access and other boating infrastructure with fees collected from paddlesports outfitters. This is one of the most recent reviews of state-based discussions and is likely similar to those taking place in your state, too. Specifics vary but the fundamental questions remain:

  • Who pays?
  • What is the basis for fees?
  • Who administers?
  • Who benefits?
  • What are the risks of overtaxing outfitters vs. the public? 

Join us as we host David Brown, Tennessee Paddlesports Association Executive Director and former E.D. of America Outdoors Association, as we discuss the growing need to fund human powered Paddlesports infrastructure across the country.
