The Haw River and its tributaries are enjoyed by those who love to hike, paddle, swim, fish, picnic, or simply sit by the water and experience its magic.

The Haw River Assembly offers lots of ways that you can appreciate the beauty of the river and share that experience with others. Check this website for a calendar of activities and events, including canoe trips, hikes along the Haw, eagle watching, wildflower hunts, river monitoring, community gatherings, mill tours, and many more activities.

Volunteering to be part of HRA projects is also a wonderful way to experience river magic and enjoy the fun and satisfaction of working with others to help protect and restore our  river. Under Projects, you can learn more about what we do and how you can participate.

Saturdays On the Haw

Our new monthly series to get involved with you – our members! Every month is a new activity we have planned to help get you closer to the river we know and love. From hikes guided by local naturalists, to advocacy trainings, climate change talks, river plant ID and so much more! We also offer paddle trips in partnership with local outfitters, Frog Hollow Outdoors and Haw River Canoe and Kayak Company.
