Morganton, NC – Get on the water for a half-day float down the Yadkin River past two scenic “Happy Valley” farms that Foothills Conservancy helped families protect with conservation easements. The float will begin at one of the family farms.

This outing is recommended for adults with beginner-level paddling experience. Children must be at least 8 years old and must be accompanied by an adult with some paddling experience. Life jackets are required for all participants.

A limited number of canoes will be available on a first-come, first-served basis for those who do not have their own canoe or kayak, so sign up early! Special thanks to CBS Sports in Morganton for providing these canoes for the float.

Those who register will receive additional information and directions. RSVP by Monday, May 16 to Tom Kenney at, or by calling 828-437-9930.
