AT THE RIVES DE L’ORNE IN CAEN, A KAYAK TO CLEAN THE RIVER!

The « Green Kayak » operation, organized by the nautical base Au fil de l’Orne and at the initiative of the Rives de l’Orne center, allows citizens to go kayaking for free in exchange for a little help to clean the river.

With the current, a lot of waste piles up along the banks. In order to contribute to the preservation of the ecosystem, Les Rives de l’Orne launched this summer an operation to clean up nature: three kayaks are made available and free of charge to visitors who can enjoy a two-hour stroll on the river. In exchange, a dip net and a garbage bag are given to the kayakers so that they can collect floating waste on the Orne during their trip.

Launched during the summer, this initiative is already a great success and will continue until October!
