Tour the French Broad River via canoe this spring! Signs of Spring – 2012 is open for the spring season and features a guided canoe trip on the picturesque river on Saturdays throughout April, May and June. Guides will share stories of the area, as well as information regarding the local flora and fauna that make this area unique. The Signs of Spring tour is offered by Headwaters Outfitters in nearby Rosman, just 8 miles west of Brevard, NC.

During the tour, participants will row along the river learning about medicinal uses (among others) of the various plants in the mountain area. There are well over 2,500 species of wildflowers and flowering shrubs in the Transylvania County region, and many of them can be found here within the French Broad River watershed.

Bird watchers will get a kick out of witnessing the migration of springtime birds! Warblers, flycatchers, woodland ducks , blue herons, and other species come to dance and play and prepare to nest here. Beaver, mink, foxes and skunks can be seen here too. Trip participants will want to keep their cameras and sketchbooks at the ready.

Signs of Spring guided trips provide a means to experience the natural beauty of the French Broad River intimately, while enjoying the relaxation of a leisurely morning canoe ride. Trips depart each Saturday at 10 AM. For more information, call Headwaters at (828) 877-3106.
