Canomobile is Back in Hopewell for October 10th Community Day

Canomobile_2014

FOLAR Welcomes the Canoemobile Floating Classroom Back to Hopewell’s City Park!

Come try a FREE ride on the amazing Appomattox River!
Tuesday, Oct. 10th, 3 – 6pm, Hopewell City Park

For the third year in a row more than 200 students from elementary schools in Hopewell will experience the learning, health benefits, and inspiration that can be derived from a paddle on the river. Many for the first time. Canoemobile is a roving fleet of six hand-made, 24 foot long Voyageur canoes, that travels across America to bring environmental literacy and dynamic outdoor learning experiences to urban youth.

The two day outreach event on Tuesday and Wednesday, October 10th & 11th in Hopewell is provided by Wilderness Inquiry, a non-profit outdoor recreation and education organization from Minneapolis, MN, and sponsored by the National Parks Conservation Association in coordination with the Petersburg National Battlefield.

FOLAR has coordinated additional programming to be provided by Virginia American Water and the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries.

This year features a free community event on Tuesday, October 10th from 3 – 6Pm at Hopewell City Park, 205 Appomattox St, Hopewell, VA 23860 on the beautiful Appomattox River.

Just come by the park and be ready for fun!
