Make a SPLASH as you discover and celebrate all the ways you can have fun on, in, or by the water! By participating in a Waterkeeper SPLASH event, you and your local Waterkeeper organization are supporting the value and importance of your local waterways and helping to conserve one of our most important natural resources: CLEAN WATER.

The Waterkeeper Alliance SPLASH Event Series, presented nationally by Toyota in partnership with national founding sponsor, Keen, is a national event program that engages local citizens and clean-water enthusiasts in water-based activities like swimming, paddling or boating.
