    Naujoks said the goal
for Tour de Yadkin 2011 is
“to celebrate the river by
encouraging public partici-
pation in ‘on-the-water’
recreation to help increase
public awareness about
recreational opportunities
and ecotourism opportuni-
ties throughout the river
    He hopes to raise
awareness of the Yadkin
River and its importance
as a public water supply, as
well as educate the public
about numerous threats
facing the river.
    “Tour de Yadkin is a
great way to educate resi-
dents about the threats to
their drinking water while
at the same time raising
greater awareness that ‘we
all live downstream,’ and
each community is having
an impact on water quality
downstream in the next
community,” said Naujoks.
“We need public support
and citizen participation
that can only come with
greater public awareness
