Wild on the Water 2022

June 4 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm


Charlotte Wildlife Stewards invites you to join them for a morning of paddling on beautiful Mountain Island Lake!  Enjoy a leisurely, guided paddle to an active osprey nest and to a cove filled with blooming waterlilies. Along the way, with our local wildlife expert, we will watch for other wildlife that call Latta Nature Preserve home, and learn about this important section of the Catawba River.

Your registration includes a delicious catered lunch by Common Market and a raffle of fabulous prizes following our time on the water. Each paddler receives a free drybag, compliments of HoneyBee Real Estate, one raffle ticket with their $50 registration, and two more raffle tickets with an additional donation of $50 or more.

A limited number of canoes are still available on a first come, first served basis. They go fast, so don’t delay!  You are welcome to bring your own kayak, canoe, or SUP.  Note: All paddlers must register separately.

If paddling is not your thing, you can support us by volunteering for traffic control, event set-up, unloading/loading canoes and kayaks, lunch and raffle set-up, and clean-up.
