The Broad River Watershed Association will host a canoe float on Saturday, May 30, to view the rare shoal lily along the lower section of the Broad River between Highway 17 and Highway 79 at the mouth of Clark Hill Lake.

We will meet at the Broad River WMA campground on Highway 79 at 9:30 a.m., and canoe from Highway 17 to Highway 79 in Elbert, Wilkes, and Lincoln counties.

The rare shoal lily that grows along the Broad River should be in full bloom at this time. During the float, we will also clean up the river as part of National River Cleanup Week.

Bring your own canoe or contact Michael Moody at the Broad River Outpost, (706) 795-3242, to arrange for a canoe or kayak. Cost to non-members is $5 per person or $10 per family, plus any canoe rental. For more information, contact Victor Johnson at (706) 795-2184, or Jean Smith at (706) 340-3187.
