Guided Canoe Trip: Oxbow Lake Trip in Perry County with Cahaba River Society
September 24 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm$20 – $40
For this trip, we will be paddling between a series of oxbow lakes and will need to portage (walk between the lakes) at points during the day. These portages are only about 20-30 feet but can be muddy, so wear close-toed shoes that you don’t mind getting dirty. Oxbow lakes are past river channels that have been separated from the current channel through any number of sedimentation events. These lakes are areas that continue to hold water and are reconnected with the river after flood events. They become oases of life and Perry Lakes Park is no different. There is a vast array of insect, fish, bird, mammal, reptile, and amphibian life.
Registration is required!
