Each year the Friends of the Liesbeek helps to organise the Peninsula Paddle. This event has had an important impact on rivers, vleis and canals of Cape Town. The paddle brings attention to the state of the waterways by raising public attention through the media and also drawing public officials to address the problems together with the public themselves.
Anyone can take part in the paddle. You can do a short section or join up to 80 paddlers who will be doing the full route. There is no cost, but you must register on the webside: www.peninsulapaddle.wordpress.com
