Paddlers on the water.
Outshine Adventures & TrailBlazUS Outdoors

This weekend in Chattanooga, you’ll find one celebration of Juneteenth on the water.

On Saturday, TrailblazUS Outdoors and Outshine Adventures are leading a Juneteenth Paddle Experience on North Chickamauga Creek at Greenway Farm.

The goal: encourage more people of color to connect with nature and each other in the outdoors - and celebrate African-American emancipation and culture.

Sunshine Loveless is owner of Outshine Adventures.

Moise Baptiste is founder of TrailblazUS Outdoors.
