Paddle through Chattanooga’s past this Saturday
This Saturday, August 2, see Chattanooga history from the perspective of the river that shapes it. The Chattanooga History Center, in cooperation with L2 Boards, presents “Paddle through the Past: Chattanooga’s Story”. This event offers you a chance to educate yourself on some fascinating Chattanooga history—while traveling the Tennessee River on a stand-up paddleboard.
The tour will depart from Ross’s Landing, then float down the river, making a turn at Veteran’s Bridge before returning to Ross’s Landing. All experience levels are welcome—anyone with an interest in history.
The tour lasts one hour, and will meet at L2 boards at 9 a.m. Fee is $25 for Chattanooga History Center members and $35 for nonmembers, and includes board rentals and life jackets. Chattanooga History Center’s Senior Educator, Caroline Sunderland, will serve as tour guide for this event.
Contact Sunderland for registration at firstname.lastname@example.org or (423) 265-3247. Registration is required by Friday, August 1, and space is limited.
This promises to be an extra-cool way to get your Saturday morning exercise and at the same time, absorb a little Chattanooga culture. Paddle on, Wayne! — Jake Bacon
