2,000-mile kayaking trip on Missouri River soon ends for environmental activist



An organizer for the Sierra Club Beyond Coal Campaign has paddled his kayak for over 60 days now to bring attention to climate change.

Graham Jordison began his 2,341 mile paddle July 19 on the Missouri River in Three Forks, MT. His paddle will end in Saint-Louis in the coming days. At 1:00 p.m. Thursday, Jordison was in Saline County, Missouri. He travels about 35 miles a day.

Jordison’s Facebook post also gave links to a GoFundMe page and a GPS location.

Jordison wrote on the GoFundMe page, “I’m taking this life-changing adventure in partnership with the Sierra Club to raise awareness of the work we do to protect the environment. “

He also said he wanted his trip to benefit his hometown of Lincoln, Nebraska, and set a goal to “raise at least a dollar for every mile traveled.” [he] paddles. He said the money will go to Blue Stem Sierra Club Group and Indian Center Inc.

Jordison chose to kayak the Missouri River because 12 coal-fired power stations are located along it. Throughout his journey, he has documented coal-fired power plants and educated the community on environmental issues.

Six other kayakers make the trip with Jordison.
