Deep Swamp Canoe Float
Sat., March 4, 1:00 pm-Sun., March 5, 9:00 am
An event every week that begins at 1:00 pm on Saturday, repeating until Sun., April 30
Join our experienced naturalist for a three-hour canoe float through seldom explored areas of Reelfoot Lake. Observe old growth cypress forest, a heron rookery and an eagle nest as we leisurely paddle through the cypress swamp. Exciting sights include large fish swimming, ducks taking flight and the occasional snake making an appearance. A variety of bird life such as songbirds, ducks, herons, owls, or an eagle usually shows up to check out the canoeist. This is one of the most unique adventures offered in West Tennessee!
