Beaver, osprey, bald eagles and other wildlife may be found along the way. Discover a bit of Patoka’s past during this morning paddle as the naturalist makes the way to “the lake within the lake.” Travel over the remnants of Wall’s Lake dam when paddling the waters of Patoka River. Bring life jackets, snacks, refreshments, and sunscreen for this two-hour long journey.
