Canoeing 101

Learn the basics of canoeing from a park ranger during this fun excursion on the park lake! You’ll learn some basic strokes and how to maneuver the canoe. The ranger will also help you identify many of the trees and wildlife you’ll encounter. The trip will last about 45 minutes and will only happen if it isn’t raining. You are required to preregister. Call 704-528-6350 to sign up. Limit 10 people. We’ll meet in the visitor center.
