Home of the Southern Arizona Paddlers Club

An informal group of non-motorized boaters, basically a networking organization. We announce member initiated trips and activities through this website, our “Facebook Page” and through periodic E-Newsletters to its members. We also publish trip reports & photos and also information pertinent to the paddle-sport community.

Our next general club meeting will be held on Wed. Sept. 11, 2019       Presentation: Jon Fuller s fascination with rivers began in early childhood, spending hours floating sticks in a creek and pretending they were boats. He paddled his first real boat at age five. At age twelve he took his first multi-day, unsupervised canoe trip. Jon s love of rivers took him to graduate school in Arizona, where he studied the flood histories of the Salt and Verde rivers. There, the subtle magic of rivers in the desert captured him, and he made Arizona his home. Over his 34-year career as a well-known hydrologist and geomorphologist, he authored hundreds of reports about rivers throughout the West. Jon worked and played on the Verde River throughout his career, and has witnessed firsthand the river s steady decline. This is his first book.
