Minesing Swamp/Wetlands

Gary James and I will organize this.
It is about a 4-5 hour paddle with probably no chance to get out to go to bathroom, depending on the waterlevel
I did it only once, and i loved the fact we paddled through the Forest and the corn field.
Had a great time
THE BIG CHANGE THIS YEAR IS THAT YOU NEED TO PURCHASE A PARKING PERMIT ONLINE BEFORE YOU GO - SEE DETAILED DESCRIPTION UNDERNEATH
So i'm in charge, but I am depending on Gary James to help me
PLEASE SIGN UP ONLINE!!!!!!
