“Paddling for Preservation” Scheduled for October 9, 2016


Break out the canoes and kayaks, or use one that will be provided, and join us as we explore a new 
river paddling and floating on the beautiful Bogue Falaya River!  Land Trust for Louisiana and Canoe & 
Trail Adventures are co-hosting “Paddling for Preservation,” a benefit event, on Sunday, October 9, 
beginning at 10 a.m. in Covington. 


The approximately 8-mile river trip follows a meandering course through modest currents and past 
numerous white sand bars and heavily-forested river banks.  Experts in Northshore flora and fauna will 
provide brief narrative, and participants will return to the launch site by mid-afternoon, with a noontime 
stop for bring-your-own bag lunch and cold drink.


Advance registration and signed waiver are required; cost is $40 per person, $30 if you provide your 
own canoe or kayak (children accompanied by two paddlers may be added to rental canoes for just $5).  
Once registered, information on the launch location, driving directions and web link to the participation 
waiver will be provided via confirmation email. 

 This 3rd annual “Paddling for Preservation” event is being hosted for the first time on the 
Bogue Falaya, part of the new Three Rivers Blueway in St. Tammany Parish.  Event proceeds benefit Land 

Trust for Louisiana, dedicated to preserving valuable natural land in the state’s coastal, agricultural and 
recreational rural, and urban communities.  The Trust’s efforts protect fresh water and endangered wildlife, 
longleaf pine and bald cypress trees, wetlands and bayous among the many of Louisiana’s natural treasures. 


To register online, please visit  Canoe and Trail Adventures 
requires everyone register ahead of time, even if you are bringing your own canoe or kayak.  If you have 
any questions, please contact Land Trust for Louisiana at 985-542-5006.
