Rock Eagle Lake opens to families for laid back nature paddle on Sept. 17 By Jessica Cameron Torhan

Whether you’re a water sports novice or an experienced paddler looking for a relaxed morning on the water, Rock Eagle 4-H Center is offering guided canoe tours of Rock Eagle Lake on September 17 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.

The tours, led by Rock Eagle environmental educators, will provide a great chance for families to explore the history of the grounds and search for native wildlife. Rock Eagle’s picturesque scenery provides the perfect opportunity to see ospreys, turtles, fish and other exciting creatures.

This program is appropriate for all ages and costs $3 per person. The program will last approximately two hours, and doors will open Saturday at 9 a.m. Rock Eagle staff will accompany participants and provide all necessary equipment. If you’ve never been canoeing before, this is a great place to learn. Instructors will go over boat safety, equipment, and help to perfect your paddling. All educators are CPR and First Aid Certified. Guests will convene in the center’s Natural History Museum preceding the program. Advanced registration for this program is required. Children under the age of 9 must canoe with a parent or adult chaperone.

For more information, or to register, please contact Jessica Torhan at (706)-484-4838 or jtorhan1@uga.edu. A complete list of Saturday at the Rock sessions may be found online at www.rockeagle4h.org/ee/community/SaturdayattheRock.html.
