Tree Swallow

Come join us for our first photo & birding tour of the season. The tour will be lead by Quickwater owner Aaron Constant. Aaron is a past professional photographer that gave up his passion for photography for his passion for paddling and opened Quickwater with his family, and now he’s combining both for a sure to be great time. This is a great opportunity for birders and photographers to come out to a great location and experience spring nature at its finest.

Knights Meadow is a WMA (Wildlife Management Area) that is abundant with wildlife. Within the marsh we’ll expect to see Swallows, Geese, Beaver and whatever waterfowl may be passing through. The trip starts here at Quickwater where we’ll register you for the trip, fit you with PFDs and prepare you for your photo or birding adventure. We invite both photographers and birders and Aaron will give instruction and share his knowledge with you to make an ordinary photo into an extraordinary photo.

Participants are welcome to bring their own kayaks or canoes or rent from us. Space is limited to 12 people on this tour. Transportation from our shop to the marsh is included. The cost for this tour is $40 per person with their own kayak or $60 for tour and rental kayak.
