DUCK RIVER CANOE FLOAT
Saturday, August 30th at 9:00am
THIS EVENT IS FULL, EVEN IF YOU HAVE YOUR OWN BOAT.
Start the Labor Day weekend off right and join us as we enjoy the cool waters of the Duck River on a warm summer day. We will be on a very flat and easy stretch of river from Leftwich Bridge to the new TWRA take out at Howard Bridge. This 4 hour stretch of the river has a gentle current and no real rapids. It’s an excellent opportunity for beginners to canoe. Participants are welcome to bring their own canoe or kayak, but will have to provide their own transportation if they do.
Leader: Forrest Evans, Stewardship Ecologist, Tennessee Division of Natural Areas. For more information about this event, or other State Scenic River events, visit the Division of Natural Areas
Canoes can be rented at a special discount of $12.50 per person or $25 per canoe through a local canoe vendor. Our put-in point is a 45-minute drive south of Nashville on I-65. Bring lunch and water and maybe a change of clothes.
Meet at the Target parking area at Old Hickory Blvd. and I-65 in Brentwood. Meeting time is 9am. Transportation for the first 10 people to sign up will be provided.
Reservations required: RSVP by August 28 to Forrest Evans or call 615-532-0431
The first 10 reservations can take advantage of free van transportation provided by the Tennessee Natural Areas Program.
