Tour our local waterways during these paddling adventures! Our 2022 kayaking series begins with a lake-based basic paddling skills class, followed by shorter and less-strenuous river sessions for beginners. As the summer progresses, choose increasingly longer and more technical paddles for intermediate skill levels. Each session, participants will receive dry-land instruction on basic kayaking techniques from an experienced instructor. Then we’ll take to the water for a naturalist-led exploration of the fascinating local ecology. Participants meet and park at the take-out location and are shuttled to the put-in. Choose any number of sessions; you can take one, two, or all six!
Boaters must be 16 years or older and be able to hold breath under water while wearing a properly fitted life jacket, independently turn from a face down to a face-up position keeping head above water, effectively communicate with the instructor and other participants, and manage all mobility and personal care independently or with the assistance of a companion.
We require registration at least one week prior to the program and full payment at time of registration. Fees: Single kayak rental - $69 for Session 1 and $85 for Sessions 2-6 (includes use of kayak, PFD and paddle). Or provide your own kayak for Sessions 2-6 for $45/participant.
