Get up close with nature on a free river boat tour.

 

There is no charge for the boat trip, but you MUST call in advance to reserve your spot.

Tours may be booked up anywhere from two weeks to a month in advance, especially in the peak summer time. It is a very popular program that is run by a volunteer effort, which can only take 10 people at a time. SO CALL EARLY!

 

Children must be 6 and older to tour.

The River Roving tours are run on donations.

Your donation keeps our boat program running as well as helps fund our environmental education mission!
