CAMP/CANOE AND KAYAK THE BARTRAM TRAIL OVERNIGHT ROUTE #1 APRIL 5 -6 SATURDAYâ€”SUNDAY
The variety of wildlife and vegetation are two of the features that make this trip stand out as we paddle through an old river channel, creek, lake, and slough in a traditional bayou setting with cypress trees, flowers, blue herons, ibis, egrets, and scores of other birds. Alligators, swamp rabbits, raccoons, deer, and bobcats are common. Feral
pigs run rampant and some black bear remain. We will also stop at Mound Island, the site of eighteen religious ceremonial mounds, the largest of which rises 45
feet. This area is designated as a National Historic Landmark; tribes lived in this area from at least 1500 B.C.; the Taensa Indians once lived on the shores of the river which bears their name, the Tensaw.
