The hope is to view wildlife. From the causeway, we'll head slightly upriver to view an osprey's nest, then paddle into Liscom Hollow. Possible sightings of beavers and muskrat. Paddle under the rail trail bridge. Leave Liscom’s and continue upriver to Monkey Island to view the eagle's nest. Look for heron, eagles, osprey and Kingfishers. Return to the causeway to end trip. For this trip you must have your own boat and equipment.  Portions of this trip involve strenuous paddling (otherwise leisurely but steady).  This trip is suggested for adults only.
