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.
