Bay Minette Basin Paddle including NEW Bartram Trail camping platforms
This trip begins and ends just like last year's popular Bay Minette paddle, but with an interesting departure to the newly-completed Bartram Canoe Trail extension. Four new sites complete the Trail from Stockton to its new "terminus" just above Meaher State Park. These new camping locations are brand new and we'd like the public to see them.
Paddlers will also enjoy small, winding bayous through trackless marshland teeming with birds, spreading out into big water and past spring wildflowers.
Gather at Buzbee Fish Camp, about a mile north of the Highway 98/Highway 31 intersection in Spanish Fort, at 10:00 am on Highway 225. Saturday March 19th. Plenty of camping and motels are nearby, as are restaurants and grocery stores. Buzbee Fish Camp turnoff is at the Mile 2 marker on Highway 225. The street address is 32500 Highway 225, Spanish Fort Alabama.
$25.00 per person fee for your guide Bob Andrews to introduce you to something new.
Bob can be reached at (251) 367-4144. Deadline for receipt of payment one week before the event.
OPTIONAL PAYMENT: Paypal to email@example.com. Be sure to mention Delta somewhere in your payment information. Please include your phone number and the date March 18.

FORT PAYNE, Ala. – The Little River Canyon National Preserve has released dates for upcoming paddle trips to take place in the backcountry portion of the preserve. This section of Little River has easy paddling with level one and two rapids.Read More
The popular paddle trips will be led by National Park Ranger Larry Beane.
The first scheduled trip will be Saturday, March 4. Other dates for the paddle trips are tentatively scheduled for March 6, 8, 9, 14, 22, 24-26, weather permitting.
The park is planning to provide free shuttle service for these events. Paddlers will need to bring their own kayak/canoe, paddle, life preservers, food, water, hat and sunscreen. For those without equipment, the park has six kayaks, paddles and lifejackets available for public use. To reserve these kayaks, get your reservations in early.
A dry suit, wetsuit, splash jacket, and warm change of clothes may be needed, depending on weather, especially on the early trips. Weather and water levels may require rescheduling of trips.
Space is limited to 20 paddlers/boats for each trip, so please call the National Park Service office at (256) 845-9605 or email Ranger Beane to RSVP. Although the program is free, RSVP is required. Time and meeting place will be given upon registration.
Park Superintendent Steve Black invites you to come enjoy this free program. For more information, call (256)845-9605.
