Paddle Bayou Lafourche, 2012, Celebrate its 11th Year Anniversary

Come experience the natural elegance of Bayou Lafourche and join the Barataria-Terrebonne National Estuary Program as we enjoy a south Louisiana weekend paddling trip.  It will be held April 19-22, 2012, from Donaldsonville to Lockport, Louisiana.
From the wilder bayou origins at the Mississippi River, this 52-mile, 4-day adventure winds its way through a number of rural communities and several small cities.  Paddlers will not only be treated to scenic natural vistas, but to a fascinating “backyard view” of this historic bayou.
Paddlers may pick and choose which day(s) to participate (from one to four days) and enjoy the bonding, camaraderie and sense of accomplishment that comes from going the distance on Bayou Lafourche — Donaldsonville to Lockport!  Many people come from all over the country to participate in this 4 day event. 
A Chateau on the Bayou Bed and Breakfast, is located on Bayou Lafourche in Raceland.  B&B guests pass out complimentary pralines to all of the paddlers as they approach the wharf  on Saturday, April 21, 2012.  This B&B hosts a party with Cajun food, music, and lots of fun for all to share.
A Chateau on the Bayou Bed and Breakfast is an excellent place for paddlers to stay during the event, or for those who just want to watch the paddlers go by.
