The Friends of Revolutionary Rivers
The Friends of Revolutionary Rivers (FOREVR) is hosting a SC Revolutionary Rivers Excursion on June 16, immediately following the much-anticipated ribbon cutting for Venters Landing in Johnsonville at 10 a.m.
First, join us for the Venters Landing ribbon cutting that completes a $450,000 project that includes a new ramp and floating dock. Then, enjoy a paddle trip from Venters Landing that should last from about 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., with equipment, snacks, and refreshments included.
The paddling excursion will follow the SC Revolutionary Rivers Trail on the beautiful Lynches Scenic River. Spend the morning kayaking through history as you spot the cypress swamplands where General Francis Marion and his militia cleverly hid from the British, earning the general the Swamp Fox nickname. This guided excursion offers paddlers a striking experience on the historic National Recreation Trail.
FOREVR is coordinated with help from the National Park Service through the Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance Program. It is a special account of the Eastern Carolina Community Foundation. As a National Recreation Trail, the SC Revolutionary Rivers Trail is a component of the National Park Service. FOREVR includes the Florence Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB), Florence County, Town of Johnsonville, Department of Natural Resources, SC Forestry Commission, Pee Dee Land Trust, Eastern SC Heritage Region, SC National Heritage Corridor, local outfitters and landowners.
