DAY ON THE RIVER will be on Saturday, June 15th this year.
Format is similar though we've added 2 new stations. One about beavers & what they do to keep a river healthy, and the other new station will teach tree identification. As always, our teaching style is all about hands-on doing & fun. As always, there is no fee and lunch is provided for all. Please go to our website www.flfr.org for more information & registration form to download. Or, just call me- 205-807-1919
For twelve years Friends of the Locust Fork River has sponsored this environmental education opportunity for Blount County children in grades three to six. Held at King's Bend on the banks of the beautiful Locust Fork river, it’s gotten bigger and better every time – with more activity stations, more children and parents, more learning, and more fun. Certified canoe instruction, get-wet ecology, snakes, are just a few of the highlights. There will be fun and learning for children and adults. Partners in providing environmental activities include Birmingham Canoe Club, Alabama River Alliance, McDowell Environmental Center, and more.
