Go canoeing on Lake Drummond

Published 9:29 pm Wednesday, April 25, 2012

Spaces are running out for Saturday’s canoe excursion on the Great Dismal Swamp’s Lake Drummond.

Liquid Lessons will conduct the trip in a “war canoe” that can accommodate up to 14 passengers simultaneously. Even if you’ve never canoed before, you need only a spirit of teamwork and a love of adventure.

The canoe excursion departs at 9 a.m. from the Suffolk Visitor Center, 524 N. Main St. Participants should bring a bag lunch, sunscreen, hats and insect repellant.
