Paddle Cane Bayou With The Coastal Desk!

Feb 23, 2018

Join WWNO's Coastal Desk for a canoe and kayak trip down Cane Bayou on the Northshore!

One of the coolest things about the Louisiana coast is the way it gradually transitions from cypress swamp into open marsh, and you'll see it firsthand on Cane Bayou. The trip will be led by a master naturalist, who will tell us all about the plants, animals and history of this slice of Louisiana's unique coastal ecosystem. 

WHO: WWNO's Coastal Desk, you and your friends and family!

WHAT: Paddle trip! (Your choice of canoe or kayak)

WHEN: Saturday, March 24, 2 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.

WHERE: Cane Bayou on the Northshore — between Fontainebleau State Park and Big Branch Marsh National Wildlife Refuge

WHY: To get outside and enjoy the spring weather, to learn about coastal ecosystems, and to support WWNO (proceeds will be donated back to the station).

PRICING: $40 for adults, $30 for children (ages 6-12); $10 discount for those who bring their own kayak or canoe

HOW DO YOU SIGN UP? Reserve your spot by signing up at the WWNO event page through the Canoe and Trail Adventures website. Hope to see y'all there.

Support for the Coastal Desk comes from the Walton Family Foundation, the Greater New Orleans Foundation, the Foundation for Louisiana, and local listeners.
