Next FBPA Float Trip August 24

FBPA hosted a float on the French Broad River on June 15 with 35 people, one beagle, and a video crew filming for a Legacy Parks documentary about the French Broad River. You can join us for the next float on Saturday, Aug. 24 at 9 am for coffee and treats at Seven Islands State Birding Park boat launch.  If you don’t have a kayak or canoe, you can reserve one with River Sports Outfitters which now has boats at the launch.
