Civilian Conservation Corps Canoe Trip
Get out of your comfort zone, climb into a canoe and join AARCH on an adventure to see the physical remnants of three 1930s Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) sites deep in the heart of the Adirondacks (near Newcomb).
On this active trip learn the history of the CCC, see the site of a main camp, then climb into canoes for a 1.25 mile paddle. Beach the canoes and bushwack to a CCC dam and former tent camp. On the return paddle, disembark to see the remains of a 19th century homestead and foundation of a former school. The trip is led by Paul Hai, Associate Director of the Adirondack Ecological Center, SUNY ESF.
Paddling 3 miles round-trip, as well as a short bushwhack is involved.
The tour begins at 10 a.m. and ends around 3 p.m.
FEE: $45 for members and $55 for non-members. Canoes, paddles, and PFDs are supplied.
