RiverTrek is Apalachicola Riverkeeper’s annual awareness and fundraising campaign supporting our outreach, education and advocacy efforts.

RiverTrek volunteers bring needed attention to the tremendous ecological importance of Florida’a Apalachicola River, floodplain and bay while raising funds for the on-going work of Apalachicola Riverkeeper. On the RiverTrek journey (October 12-16), the kayak paddlers travel the entirety of the Apalachicola River in 5 days, averaging 20+ miles per day with additional side-trips. Each night the paddlers set up camp along the river. Along the journey, the team meets with historians, local officials, naturalists and scientists to learn more about the connectivity of this dynamic river and bay system. RiverTrek team members become ambassadors for the Apalachicola River and Bay. Please help the RiverTrek 2022 team meet their fundraising goal. All funds directly support our outreach, education and advocacy work.

Greg Krivonak
Greg Krivonak

Greg grew up in Southern New Jersey, where the water has always been a part his life, sailing small lakes, rivers, and coastal waterways. He has explored these on many different kinds of boats, as a biologist and an adventurer. A former kayak guide in the San Juan Islands of Washington State, Greg has explored Alaska extensively. His longest kayak trip was an extended two-person, 1100-mile journey, along the Sea of Cortez, in the Baja Peninsula of Mexico. As a fisheries biologist in Pacific NW and Alaska, there began his interest in building boats, which has led to a lifetime of living on the water. Greg finished building a 34’ sailboat in 2002, Willow, which he and his wife Bonnie lived on, cruising the North and South Pacific extensively. Greg now resides in Apalachicola. He is excited to explore the Apalachicola River system and beyond, welcoming the opportunity to coexist on the river with a group of like-minded people to bring awareness to a unique and precious river system. On RiverTrek trip, Greg will be rowing the most recent boat he built, a unique Angus Row Cruiser expedition boat.
