Paddle Without Pollution in Pittsburgh Tuesday announced it is the 2014 recipient of the prestigious ACA Green Paddle for Waterway Conservation Award.

Each year, the ACA recognizes a select group of individuals and organizations who have illustrated exemplary leadership, service, and dedication to various aspects of paddlesport.

The Green Paddle for Waterway Conservation Award is presented annually to an individual or a group that has made an outstanding contribution to paddlesport by protecting America's waterways.

The ACA has over 20,000 members, and 300 paddling clubs and affiliated organizations.  The ACA sponsors over 4,300 events each year, including 200 races.  The ACA education program has an estimated outreach of 800,000 people a year.
