Terrapin Creek Essentials of River Safety: Paddling Clinic
Learn the SECRETS of fun & safe paddling from the experts! This American
Canoe Association sponsored event is geared to teach beginner/intermediate paddlers the skills needed for a safe paddling
trip in canoes or kayaks. Terrapin Creek is the perfect and lovely setting for this exciting day.
Local paddling professionals, such as Fred Couch, American Canoe Association's Gordon Black,and JSUís Dr. Jimmy Griffin
have designed this hands-on workshop to increase knowledge and safety on our waterways. Learning stations will be set
up along Terrapin Creek (with the help of Alabama, Florida, Georgia & Tennessee canoe clubs) where participants will be
taught safety, rescue drills, and the basic "how to" of paddling.
This event is hosted by Terrapin Creek Outdoor Center, Cherokee County Chamber of Commerce and JSU Field Schools.
Pre-registration is required.
