Cheoah River Release
Sep 12 all-day
Cheoah River Release @ North Carolina | United States

Western NC offers some of the best whitewater rafting and kayaking east of the Mississippi. The recently unleashed Cheoah isn’t for the faint of heart.  The river has many Class IV/IV+ rapids and lots of residual vegetation that require a high skill level to negotiate. With the exception of two or three half-mile or so sections, the Cheoah is unusually continuous with a gradient that is consistently steep for a river it’s size. The 9+ mile run can be broken into three sections and represents a whitewater experience not often found in the Southeast!

Cheoah River is located 8 miles North of Robbinsville on Hwy 129. River pass bracelets can be purchased at O’Henry’s, Outland Expeditions 800-827-1442 or Cheoah Ranger Station 828-479-6431.

Snowbird Lodge Birding with Aaron Steed
Sep 26 – Oct 1 all-day

Aaron Steed has been interested in birds and natural history his entire life. Originally from Wilmington, NC, Aaron received his B.S. in General Biology from the University of North Carolina at Asheville in 2010. He has been birding and hiking all over the southeastern US as well as New Mexico, Colorado and Texas. He has worked with Audubon NC, searching for Piping Plover nesting sites, and with Texas A&M mapping the territories of Golden-cheeked Warblers and Black-capped Vireos on Fort Hood in central Texas. He has also spent several seasons with Southern Appalachian Raptor Research (SARR), learning the art of banding songbirds and migratory hawk-counting at Big Bald Banding Station in Mars Hill, NC. Though he loves traveling and birding new places, he’ll always be drawn back to the Asheville area by the splendid beauty and biodiversity of the Southern Appalachians.
