See the Little T on guided canoe trip

A guided float down the Little Tennessee River will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, July 21, as part of the Highlands Biological Foundation’s “Think About Thursdays” summer event series.

Jenny Sanders of the Little Tennessee Watershed Association and Brent Martin of the Wilderness Society will guide the canoe trip. Learn about various aspects of the river, from the diverse flora and fauna of the Little Tennessee to its rich history and deep connections to the Cherokee.

The canoe trip will begin at Jerry Anselmo’s Great Smokey Mountains Fish Camp, and take out near the Rickman General Store in Cowee.  Registration required; lunch is included in the $35 fee.
