From October 6th-18th, 2015 Rivers for Change board members Danielle Katz and Matt Palmariello paddled from source to sea for 192 miles on SUPs down the Androscoggin River in Maine.  The team spent 13 days in the field, 12 days paddling & 1 day resting & restocking. They walked 13.25 miles during 15 portages around 24 dams.  The Androscoggin River was once one of the 20 most polluted rivers in the country, was the catalyst for the Clean Water Act of 1972 and is now a comeback story in the making.  On their journey they witnessed abundant wildlife, peak foliage, amazing scenery and best of all, a river that is truly on the mend.
