The River Wild

Published October 01, 2006
Nothing could be more intimidating than the bumper sticker on the station wagon in front of me Saturday. I followed the threatening slogan into Blue Spring State Park for Paddle Battle, the area's first-ever kayak and canoe race.

Paddle Battle was organized by Erik Peterson, a 24-year-old AmeriCorps service volunteer, as a chance to appreciate parks on National Public Lands Day. A lighthearted but energetic group of 25 kayakers and one canoe duo took up the challenge.
