Breaking Up on Bayou Fountain

2018-02-18

BREC Conservation and BREC Outdoor Adventure are hosting a Birds and Beyond Paddle on Bayou Fountain on Saturday, March 3rd. When they went to check out the bayou, they had to power through a bit of a jam, but they knew who to call. (No, not Ghostbusters.) Read more…

PaddleBR’s Project ReWard is underway, and the high water really makes us feel like we’re getting somewhere.  This time, we polished off more of Barringer and then made a big dent in the top layers of the giant jam at the Derelict Bridge by Buzbee Drive.
