  • Black Water Creek Paddle
    Sun, Sep 13, 9 am
    Join Friends of the Wekiva River for a paddle on Black Water Creek, part of the Wekiva Wild and Scenic River System. Our journey will begin within Seminole State Forest at 9 a.m. September 13. The entrance to the forest is on the north side of State Road 46, approx. 1/4 mile west of the Wekiva River Bridge. Gather in the parking lot to the west of the entrance. The field trip is free, but a $2.00/person entrance fee is required. The paddle is limited to 20 kayaks or canoes, so reservations are required. Canoes will be available for rent at the launch site for $20 and must be reserved at least two day in advance. Please bring water, snacks/picnic lunch, hat, water shoes, sunscreen and bug spray. Paddlers of all levels, from beginners to experienced, are welcome on one of our last "wild" rivers in Florida. Contact Weegie Henry at 407-341-9025 or weegie1021@aol.com for reservations or information.
