Paddling Pilgrimage at Blue Spring
October 8 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Hosted by the St. Johns Riverkeeper, the Florida Right to Clean Water and Rights of Water. Paddle to the Blue Spring State Park spring run, then paddle up the run to the head spring and slowly float back down. On the way back down, everyone will gather at the confluence of Blue Spring and the St. Johns River to do a discussion and spiritual blessing of the waters, thankfully honoring the life-giving Creation of Clean Water. This is a multifaith event, and anyone’s belief system will be welcome. You are invited to read a poem or a phrase that connects you to the earth and waters. Everyone will then paddle back to the landing via the oxbow tributary across from the launch. The whole paddle will be only 2 miles. Attendees should bring a kayak, canoe or stand-up paddleboard, drinking water, a hat, a personal flotation device, a whistle, and any other necessities for safe paddling. Free. Registration is not required. Email to firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
