June 10, 1pm–4:30pmWhat
Fayette County Farm Bureau in partnership with Fayette Soil & Water Conservation District will hold their annual Paddle and Learn Water Quality Canoe Float at Paint Creek on Saturday, June 10. This family oriented event is designed to highlight local watersheds and educate participants as they explore their local rivers from the unique perspective of floating down river.
Participants are encouraged to lather on the sunscreen before they make their way down roughly a 1.5 mile stretch of river. Along the way participants may complete a scavenger hunt to help adults and children alike identify stream characteristics such as ripples and tributaries. Additionally, Soil & Water provide seine nets that allow little ones to catch various species of macroinvertebrates for identification.
The trip ends with an ice cream social
$5 off if you bring your own canoe/kayak
