Paddle Egan’s Creek (Nassau County)
October 11 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
JOIN ST. MARYS RIVERKEEPER and AMELIA ADVENTURES TO EXPLORE EGAN’S CREEK!
Egan’s Creek in Fernandina Beach, FL, is part of William Bartram’s Trail and runs through the Greenway. The tide is with us for a beautiful tour of this local estuary where there will be opportunities to see all kinds of wildlife, from birds to fish to crustaceans. The beautiful marsh grasslands also allow for an uninterrupted view of the historic Amelia Island Lighthouse. This trip is roundtrip.
Our guest speakers are no longer able to join us for this paddle. We hope to offer this historical journey paddle in the future.
