Join Two Sisters Adventure Company for an exploratory paddle on the Beaver Dam area of Falls Lake. Search for Great Blue Heron and other wading birds. Learn about the human history of Falls Lake and what makes the Beaver Dam area so special. Based on group interest and trip pace we may visit large Beaver Dams on the end of the impoundment, if we don't make it there we will talk about the namesakes of this area.

After lunch a hike will be led by Central Section Chair Phillip Cox.
