Welcome to the Peace River Watershed Excursion

It’s morning on the Peace River. Life comes to the river, and the river comes to life...

One may hear the cry of a limpkin or see little blue herons wade with outstretched wings.

Slider turtles balance on a tree snag, while alligators creep nearby.

It’s a scene repeated daily.

The river is of importance to more than wildlife too.

People have used the river for thousands of years. The Native Americans once used it as a highway for their dugout canoes and as a source of fresh water.

In current times, people enjoy relaxing and playing on the river, and the lower portion of the river is used to supply drinking water to the region.

Come with us as we explore the Peace River and its watershed.
