Walk like a Duck
January 20, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 3:15 pm
Many species of waterfowl, including ducks, grebes, loons and cormorants spend the winter months on Lake James and now you have an opportunity to observe them in their element. Ranger Clay Veasey will be your guide as we hike the Paddys Creek Trail in search of waterbirds. The weather could be blustery, so be sure to dress warmly if the forecast demands it. Meet at the Paddys Creek Area bathhouse breezeway at 10 a.m.
