*** You must first register with Chesterfield County to attend this paddle - see link *** https://apm.activecommunities.com/chesterfieldparksrec/Activity_Search?activity_id=11315 Paddle with park naturalists to explore the county's newest conservation area along the lower Swift Creek. Our knowledgeable naturalist will explain the three aquatic environments (river, swamp and tidal marsh) as we paddle in this 459 acre conservation area. We'll meet at Henricus Park and be transported via van to the put-in location at the Swift Creek Reservoir. Paddling time is 3 - 3 ½ hours, depending how many questions we ask. (Sometimes paddling real slowly on the way back works, too.) COST: $21, includes kayak, PFD, interpretive guides and transport to and from the put-in location. This is not a BYOB event. SPONSER: Chesterfield County Parks and Recreation. REGISTER HERE: https://apm.activecommunities.com/chesterfieldparksrec/Activity_Search?activity_id=11315 REGISTRATION is required in advance: You are responsible to register with Chesterfield County Parks and Recreation.

RSVP'ing on this meetup page does not constitute registration! You must first register with Chesterfield County. Chesterfield County will send an email to registered participants a few days before the paddle, which will contain additional information.
