RebelMouse: This year’s Whitewater Open Canoe National Championships will take place in Maine, hosted by the Penobscot Nation on the Penobscot River, July 22-26, 2015.

Races will start in Old Town and end in Eddington or before, depending on the event. This section of river has only recently been restored to its free-flowing condition. The Penobscot Nation was a participant in the Penobscot River Restoration, which involved removing 2 dams in a collaborative effort to improve access to 1,000 miles of river habitat for 11 species of migratory fish.
