This meetup is sponsored by Nancy with Lowcountry Hiking and Adventures group, but I will be a guide on the trip and would love to have some more Paddle Boarders join us! We will have a few paddle boards available for rent if needed just send me a message. Here is the meetup info from Nancy:
"Kayaking in January? YOU BET! We do have the following Saturday as a back-up date if Jan 12th turns out to be too cold or bad weather. And YES, I'm counting on it warming up just a little by then. Long range forecast - may be in the 60's.
Webb Wildlife Center has a gorgeous black water trail (loop) through the Cypress Swamp and Tupelo Trees.
We will be on the water for appx 2 hours and is beginner friendly (call me if you are new so we can discuss).
We'll meet at 12:45 at the Visitors Center, then at 1 pm, follow each other down to the landing and parking field.
There are 13 Single Kayaks and 5 Tandem Kayaks available for rent, provided by Marshgrass Adventures. "Have your own boaters" are also welcome!
