Guided canoe trips to be offered through Reelfoot natural area
Posted: Friday, October 7, 2011 8:01 pm
There will be two trips through the Reelfoot Lake area – one on Oct. 29, beginning at 3 p.m., followed by a trip on Oct. 30 at 9 a.m. The Reelfoot trip will focus on the fall colors and White Pelican migration – mixing in a little history about Tennessee state natural areas, state parks and the 200th anniversary of the formation of Reelfoot Lake. This canoe trip is on flat water, but some upper-body strength is required, as the trip will last approximately three hours. Participants are encouraged to bring a snack and water to drink. Sunscreen and bug spray are recommended. Deadline for reservations is Oct. 27. Canoes, life jackets and paddles will be provided. Visitors are welcome to bring their own canoes/kayaks. Reservations are required. You may sign up for any of the above trips by calling the Reelfoot Lake Visitor Center at (731) 253-9652.
