The West Virginia Navy left dock on this day… 32 paddlers made the Capon Bridge to Route 127 run. Few raindrops but these sailors are hearty!

Trash Pick-Up in the Lower Cacapon, April 25th, 2021

You all are AMAZING! Two dozen river-lovers picked up trash, tires — even TVs along the lower Cacapon on this past Sunday.
And thank you, Mercedes Tibbits, for organizing this event! Your energy and passion inspire us all.

Water Reporter

Friends of the Cacapon will use the Water Reporter app as a critical tool in support of our Keep the Cacapon Clean campaign.

Water Reporter users join an online community of individuals and organizations working to map and protect their local water resources. Developed by Chesapeake Commons, this mobile application for Android and iPhone has been deployed nationwide in dozens of watersheds as a way of crowd-sourcing geo-referenced images of waterways, and reporting water quality threats in real-time.
