EcoAdventures - Paddling the Apalachicola on RiverTrek 2012, Part 1

The player will be placed here

Produced by: Rob Diaz de Villegas
Original Air Date: October 31, 2012

RiverTrek is a yearly fundraiser for the Apalachicola Riverkeeper. A group of paddlers kayak down 105 miles of the Apalachicola River, from the Woodruff Dam to Apalachicola Bay. They want to raise awareness of the issues facing the river and bay.

On days 1 and 2, the trekkers paddled the upper Apalachicola, camping and resting on wide sandbars overlooked by tall river bluffs. They explored the area around the river as well, where a hike in Torreya State Park leads to impromptu spelunking, and the trekkers climb the tallest river bluff in Florida.
