Paddling the Green River
Tuesday, November 13
6:30 p.m.

The Green River wanders through geological time periods, through the stunning Stillwater Canyon and the ruins of the Ancient Pueblo Peoples as it winds its way through Canyonlands National Park in Utah. This past summer, 13 scouts from local Boy Scout Troop 4100 splashed, hiked, and canoed through 50 miles of this amazing terrain. Come along with local Life Scout Douglas McPeak as he guides you through his experiences on this paddle of a lifetime.
