The Marshall Foundation will host the fourth historic RIVER OF GRASS Canoe Expedition on March 9-10, 2013. The two-day expedition continues the journey that traces the water flow to the south from the northern part of the Everglades starting on March 9, 2013 at 20 Mile Bend, the northern part of the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee Wildlife Refuge and ending after 16 miles on March 10, 2013 at the Lee Road dock of the Refuge. We invite the public to participate by paddling in a canoe and camping in the Everglades for one night or to view the webcasts made during the expedition where the participants and leaders of the expedition answer questions posed by students from Palm Beach County schools.
As in the previous expeditions, the Canoe Expedition will be led by experienced paddlers who have a passion for the Everglades and a deep knowledge of the plant and wildlife as well as the environmental conditions affecting this precious resource.
The 2013 RIVER OF GRASS Canoe Expedition is part of the 15th Anniversary Celebration of the Arthur R. Marshall Foundation and the paddlers will be greeted by Marshall Foundation board members, staff and guests when they arrive at the Lee Road dock of the Refuge on Sunday afternoon and join in the celebration.
