Explore Lake James by Canoe

25 Aug 2013

Lake James by morning is the most peaceful and beautiful time to be on the water. Wildlife abounds, with fish jumping, herons stalking, deer browsing and dragonflies buzzing. Enter this quiet realm by canoe and see life on the lake in its undisturbed state. Park Superintendent Nora Coffey will lead this special tour that includes instruction on proper paddling techniques and entering and exiting a canoe. Pre-registration is required for the limited number of vessels available. Bring sunscreen, binoculars and cameras, along with clothing and footwear that can get wet. Meet Supt. Coffey at the Paddy’s Creek Area office at 9 a.m. To register, call the park office at 828-584-7728.
