Adventure Friday: Discover the Ancient Bald Cypress of NC

  • Townsend Bertram & Company 200 North Greensboro Street Carrboro, NC, 27510 United States (map)

We are thrilled to welcome back Captain Charles Robbins for the second year in a row. Captain Robbins will share stories of his kayak and canoe explorations along the Black River and in the Three Sisters Swamp, home to hundreds of ancient bald cypress trees. Aged over 2,000 years, these North Carolina trees are the oldest living cypresses in the world! Equipped with a truly authentic sense of place, a passion for the outdoors, and the research of world renowned Dr. David W. Stahle, Captain Robbins unfolds one of our coat’s great mysteries, the fate of Roanoke’s lost colony. Join us for this special guest presentation with awesome raffle prizes that benefit the ongoing conservation efforts on the Black and Cape Fear Rivers.
