Paddle Camping on the FB Paddle Trail

April 16 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Have you ever wanted to do a paddle overnighter? Do you want to get a taste of a river expedition? Learn the secrets behind using the FB Paddle Trail.

Here’s a sneak peak:
Secret #1: Your canoe or kayak is doing most of the heavy lifting. So, bring whatever you want! You’re not backpacking, so if you want your dog to have a costume box and it fits in your boat, bring it.

Secret #2: You can eat SOOOO well when you paddle camp. Bring your camp stove or a dutch oven to create your favorite meal with a sweet view.

Headwaters Outfitters, the French Broad Riverkeeper, and MountainTrue are hosting another session on how to use the FB Paddle Trail. Whether you’re looking to do one night or 14, we’ll tell you how. Get all your questions answered – from what gear to bring, to how to reserve campsites, and where to stock up on beer. There will even be a raffle to win a free camping weekend.

WNC for the Planet is a collective made up of local environmental organizations that provides access to service, educational, and recreational opportunities throughout the month of April. We strive to unify our community to encourage and celebrate environmental stewardship for our planet and the region. Learn more at wncfortheplanet.org.
