Lifelong Adventure: Black River Paddle

  • Saturday, April 01, 2017
  • 7:00am - 7:00pm

Paddle the beautiful Black River, which flows by some of the oldest living trees in the eastern United States.  The Black River is believed to have the largest concentration of ancient (1000+ years old) bald cypress trees than anywhere else in the world—including the oldest documented at almost 1700 years old!  This paddle will literally transport you back in time to a forest that has endured for centuries.

Rain date is Sunday, April 2, 2017.
