San Bernard River Canoe/Kayak
Saturday, November 17, 2018, 9:30 AM until 3:30 PM
Located downstream from the Attwater Prairie Chicken National Wildlife Refuge and upstream of the San Bernard National Wildlife Refuge, the site for this outing lies within a stretch of the San Bernard River designated by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department as an “Ecologically Significant River Segment.” It provides habitat for a diverse fish community, and offers one of the best examples of old growth cypress forest in our part of the state. Add to this its easy accessibility, near Highway 59, less than 50 miles southwest of downtown Houston. Participants must provide their own canoe or kayak, life jackets (required to be worn), and paddles. The trip leader can help you with advice regarding gear rentals from Houston area outfitters, if needed. Paddling time: 3-4 hours, plus breaks for sightseeing and lunch. Difficulty: easy to moderate. (The route doubles back on itself, so it is possible to do only the morning segment if desired – just be sure to sign out with the trip leader.) Recommended donation to the Houston Sierra Club: $10. Trip size is limited. To register, contact Tom Douglas at firstname.lastname@example.org or (713) 869-6026. A detailed trip information sheet will be sent by email to registered participants.
