Kayaking for Active Older Adults
September 9 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am$10.00
The Blanchard River is peaceful in the morning. See for yourself during a leisurely kayak trip that begins and ends at Zonta Landing. There will be a brief talk about boating safety and how to maneuver the kayak followed by a scenic float trip. Beginner and experienced kayakers are welcome to participate. The kayak launch makes launching and landing much easier than from the beach. Bring a friend or family member and meet other participants who share your interest in nature. Kayaking is part of the Hancock Park District’s Leisure Education Initiative that involves a series of outdoor recreation instructional courses that introduce outdoor recreation activities, teach fundamental skills, and encourage participation in outdoor recreation over the course of a lifetime. If you are new to kayaking, then it is never too late to start. If you are an experienced kayaker, then this is another opportunity to engage in outdoor recreation.
Zonta Landing at Riverside Park
Ages 50 and up.
