The Polk County High School outdoor education class recently had the opportunity to take inflatable kayaks down the Green River. For the second year in a row, Green River Adventures in Saluda offered their expertise and services to the outdoor education class at Polk County High School.

The students took inflatable kayaks down class I and class II rapids on the Green River. Many of the students had never experienced the river in this fashion and said it was a safe, fun and exciting time for them. Teachers of the class say the hope of this class is to teach students about activities they can enjoy close to home as well as focusing on outdoor leadership.

Green River Adventures gave the students a hands-on lesson about the opportunities available here in Polk County.
