Lake Erie North Shore Standup is hosting its second annual paddleboard adventure in August to raise funds for Carolinian Canada's Lake Erie Coastal Stewardship EcoTrail. Standup paddleboarding (SUP) combines the best of kayaking and surfing and is the world's fastest growing sport. Paddlers are invited create fundraising profiles and goals. Consider sponsoring one of this year's SUP'ers.

This year's paddleboard adventure is part of a larger event series - Carolinian Canada's 30/30 Vision Campaign. Participants are invited to drop by the Carolinian Canada booth at Crystal Beach park and learn more about the natural beauty of southern Ontario and the importance of Lake Erie's coast. It's also a great opportunity to pick up a passport to track event attendance in this exciting, nature-themed series. This year's event is generously sponsored by Ausmosis Board Craft, Boggio Family Pharmacies, Rip Rip Curl, VANS, Entomogen, Fort Erie Underwater Recovery Unit, and the Crystal Beach BIA.

Who: The Lake Erie North Shore Standup is organizing the paddleboard race to celebrate Lake Erie and to inspire people to explore the coast and support EcoTrail stewardship efforts.

Carolinian Canada, a registered charity, has launched the 30/30 vision campaign, a year-long celebration of Carolinian Canada. The North Shore Standup event is an opportunity to celebrate the diverse aquatic and terrestrial habitats along Lake Erie's north shore and support the development of a the 600+ km Erie Coastal Stewardship EcoTrail spearheaded by Carolinian Canada with many partners. Who should attend: The event is open to paddleboarders of any age or level including beginners who want to harness their inner surfer and learn to "walk on water". Paddlers can try their skills at 5 km, 10 km or 20 km distances on race day and attend SUP clinics, guided nature hikes or beach restoration projects. Prizes will be awarded to paddlers who raise funds for the EcoTrail. Rental boards are available.

When: August 23 & 24th, 2014 on Lake Erie in Niagara (starting at Nickel Beach; registration opens at 7:30 a.m.). The race will take place on Saturday if the weather cooperates. Clinics, hikes and demos will be held on day two.

More information about Carolinian Canada: Carolinian Canada Coalition brings together diverse groups and individuals to advance a collaborative conservation strategy for healthy ecosystems and thriving communities in the Carolinian Life Zone. Stretching from Toronto to Windsor, Canada's Deep South is among North America's most vibrant and fragile ecoregions.

The Lake Erie Coastal EcoTrail: From Essex to Niagara, the Erie Coastal Stewardship EcoTrail highlights natural and cultural treasures of Canada's south coast. The shore supports diverse aquatic and terrestrial habitats and an array of rare species. From a freshwater perspective, Lake Erie's wetlands are especially important because they provide habitats for populations of rare fish, including the Eastern Sand Darter, Lake Chubsucker, Spotted Gar and globally imperiled Pugnose Shiner.

The 30/30 Vision Campaign offers Ontarians a chance to learn about the natural beauty in The Carolinian Life Zone through a fun and interactive series of events, stories and challenges.
