Click here to read a report by Matt on yesterday's paddle from French's Lake up Majors Creek.
We had some folks from the Sierra Club with us on this paddle, who are planning a paddle in a different direction from the French's Lake put-in, to be led by Jeff Gauldin and a colleague of his from DCNR. You may remember that Jeff did a presentation at one of our recent club meetings about the DCNR's work on the Bartram Canoe Trail. If you'd like to have Jeff as your tour guide on the trail he helped create, here's your chance to do so with our friends at the Sierra Club. Here are the details:
March 8, 2003, Saturday: A Day Paddle on the William Bartram Canoe Trail in the Mobile-Tensaw Delta
Jeff Jordan and Keith Gauldin, naturalist, both of the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Lands Division, will be taking us on a beautiful day trip along the canoe trail. We put in and take out at French's Lake at 9:00a, returning by 3:00p approx. Pack a lunch with beverage. Canoe rentals will be available. To reserve a boat, call early, but no later than February 28, and for directions, call Lou 626-4012. $2 fee per person will be donated to the fund to improve the trail network.
(Editor's note: Very clear, written directions to the French's Lake put-in can also be found at the end of Aven's trip report on the "Dedication of the Bartram Canoe Trail" on our separate website for paddle reports: www.paddlereport.blogspot.com.)
