What better way to celebrate Earth Day 2013 than by mingling with wildlife on a kayak or standup paddleboard! Join local naturalist and guide Spring Courtright for this celebratory Earth Day Paddle.
We'll get a hands-on guided tour of the Poulsbo Marine Science Center, then Spring will have a short paddling lesson or refresher before fitting boats and boards.
Then we'll paddle out to search for the resident Harbor Seals, Bald Eagles, jumping fish and other wildlife. We'll stop for a snack and take some quiet moments to fully appreciate the peace of the natural world we're immersed in before we head back to the dock and our normal lives.
We use stable double kayaks, but single and performance sea kayaks are available upon request (the price is the same). All ages are welcome and no experience is needed.
Please feel free to bring your own kayak, but let us know if you plan to do so: [masked] or (360) 297-4659.
Cost is $55/adult and $35/youth. Registration is available through the Bainbridge Parks and Recreation at BIParks.org or (206)[masked] x118. The class is #[masked] for adults and #[masked] for youth on page 33 of the brochure.
Spring is the program director for the Olympic Outdoor Center and has been a guide with them for 12 years.
