In October, we were blessed to take a *free* pontoon tour of the KY River in Frankfort with my parents. The city offers this tour weekly late spring through early fall as a unique historical guided tour of Kentucky’s capital city.
Boats, dams, bridges, flood walls, historical sties, historical stories and more made for fascinating science and history lessons!
As a nature study, a boat tour is a great way to observe river life from a new perspective. Trees, plants, rocks, landforms, erosion, decomposition, evidence of flood, water animals, animals that live near water, predator/prey relationships and many more opportunities presented themselves just during this hour-long trip.
Studying rivers or creeks from the banks is great fun, but if you ever have a chance to take a boat study – go for it! It’s great fun!
