FAR Takes Trip On the Appomattox River
Published 4:45 pm Thursday, July 25, 2013
On July 20, five members of The Friends of the Appomattox River ventured in canoes and a kayak down a 4-5 mile stretch of the Appomattox River and its canal system in an area above and leading downstream to a park just above the Lake Chesdin terminus. Many birds were seen during the float including a bald eagle, cormorants, blue heron and the ubiquitous Carolina wren. During the trip, Lee Woodruff expounded upon regional natural history, as well as upon the construction of relevant Appomattox River dams and spillways, while Damien Fehrer was able to identify every bird — even from a mere call or song.
