On March 9, 2013 National Park Ranger Larry Beane will lead a paddle trip in the backcountry part of the preserve. This section of Little River is known for easy paddling with class I and II rapids. The all day trip is scheduled 10 am to 4 pm. The trip will include stops along the way to learn about safety and special resources in the park.
Paddlers will need to bring their own kayak/canoe, paddle, life preservers, food, water, hat and sunscreen. The water will probably be cold, and the weather may be cool too, so plan your clothing accordingly. A splash jacket and warm cloths may be needed. The park is planning on providing free shuttle for this event.
Call the National Park Service office at (256) 845-9605 or email Ranger Beane at Larry_Beane@nps.gov for more information or to RSVP. Although the program is free, RSVP is required. Time and meeting place will be given at that time.
