Mohican Waters Paddle Club
The Mohican Waters Paddle Club is a group of human-powered watercraft enthusiasts who enjoy nature, preserving the environment, waterway conservation, and building recreational boats and equipment. Based in Richland and Ashland counties in Ohio, we welcome anyone who enjoys swinging a paddle, whether it be from a canoe, kayak or any rowing craft.

Because there is no leader in this group, everyone attending group events is responsible for their own personal safety and should be equipped with necessary safety equipment such as PFDs, distress whistles, visual signals, bilge pumps and lights as well as boat registrations and licenses. The Mohican Waters Paddling Club charges no membership fees and assumes no reponsiblity for personal injury or equipment damage incurred during group paddles.

The Mohican Waters Paddling Club was organized by a group of paddlers in February 2002. For more information, contact Dan Naugle at 419-368-4109 or email [email protected].

The MWPC has adopted a stretch of the Black Fork River running from US Rt 42 to US 30 in the Ohio Department of Natural Resouces' Adopt-a-Waterway program. We have already completed several outings to pick up litter and remove logjams to maintain a navigable waterway through this beautiful river.
Observing nature is a natural extension of kayaking trips undertaken by the Mohican Waters Paddle Club.
