This special event takes in one of the most significant antebellum historic sites in the Etowah River Valley--Valley View plantation, a home that predates the Civil War and was occupied by Union troops during the war. A tour of the home will be followed with a six mile paddle down the Etowah where participants will view centuries-old Native American fish dams. A catered dinner at Valley View will wrap up the evening along with a kayak raffle and live auction.
$75 per person or $130 per couple (includes a chance win new recreational kayak, canoe and kayak rentals for paddle trip, dinner, beer, wine and beverages, a tour of historic Valley View plantation and a year’s membership in CRBI). Patrons may attend dinner only beginning at 6 p.m., but we highly recommend the paddle trip! Only 75 tickets are available. Reserve your tickets now before they're all gone!
Rock dams built by Native Americans, Graffiti left by occupying Union soldiers at Valley View, Riverside springs bubbling forth cold pure water…see it all on this afternoon of exploration to support the Coosa River Basin Initiative as we work to improve public access to the Etowah.
Host Committee: Becky Champion, Jim Lanier, Richard Bailey, Randy & Shelley Elkins, Mary & Bob Norton, Joe & Leanne Cook, Joanne SmithSponsored By:
