“Personally, I’m a big birding paddler, so … the evening in the fall is one of my favorites,” Evans said.
Each trip is led by a CNC naturalist and offers an introduction to the ecology of the Chattahoochee River, according to the center’s website.
“Our evening canoe trips are typically at sunset and especially at this time of year, our sunsets are spectacular,” she added.
Ticket information for the Nov. Fall Colors trips: Ages 6 – Adult; $35 general public/$30 CNC member (price per person). Advance registration required by the Thursday before each trip.
“It is always exciting to get people out on the water because it’s so easy to escape the bustle of being in Atlanta or the city suburbs, and just slow down on the water. We have a very nice scenic route. You don’t have to drive far,” Thompson said.
