Events & Paddle Assistant


Friends of the Kaw likes to be as many places as posssible….but with just one full time staff member, that makes it difficult.  In order to spread our message as far and wide as possible along the 173 mile Kansas River corridor, it takes many volunteers!  Please check out all of the fun opportunities there are for you to help us spread our message!

Contact Dawn Buehler, Kansas Riverkeeper, at or call 785.312.7200 for more information or to volunteer at a specific event.

Paddle Assistant on the River

Come join FOK as a Paddle Assistant on our Group Educational Paddle Trips that run from mid-April through the end of October each year.  You must have your own kayak to participate as a volunteer for this program.  See our full calendar for specific dates and trips!
