Jax "Second Saturday" Outing - Paddle Betz-Tiger Point Preserve

Join us on Sierra Club’s next “2nd Saturdays Outing” as part of Mayor Brown’s People+Parks Connection

Betz–Tiger Point Preserve. We're going onto the water (and we'll visit the upland site).

NOTE the early start time--so we can enjoy high tide.  Sunrise will be at 6:45am EST.

Grab your paddling gear and put in at marshside in this fine part of the wonderful Timucuan Trail State and National Parks.

Details to come--check back here in March for more information.

If you'll need to borrow a boat, contact the trip organizer by Noon Tuesday 5-March--there may be a modest rental cost if enough suitable extra boats are not available from Sierra Club friends.


April’s “2nd Saturday Outing” with Mayor Brown’s People+Parks Connection will be at Tillie K. Fowler Regional Park. Hopefully we can visit its nature center, if it's open that morning.

These Sierra Club outings were announced with Mayor Alvin Brown at the end of June as part of an effort to get residents out to hike new and improved park trails, launch kayaks from newly designated sites and swim safely in Jacksonville pools, rivers and beaches.

    Sorry, I won't be able to make it. Eye injury, probably best to keep out of the sun/wind this weekend.

    Our outing is still on! Should be a fine day tomorrow, with only a bit of a cool start--likely 50F at start, warming to 60+F by 10am--sunny (bring hat & sunscreen). Bring your own boat, lifevest & paddle, unless you have already made arrangements with me or an outfitter to deliver a boat+PFD+paddle to the put-in site. We'll be putting in before and shoving off at 7:30, so don't be late.

    Hi Tom, this will be my first meeting so I don't know anyone yet. Do you think there will be a rental shop on site so I can rent a kayak when I am there?

      Dear JY-- I can arrange for a nice 2-seater at no charge (borrowing from a friend; with two paddles and PFDs). Have you RSVP'd? Please confirm soon if you'll be coming. I need to know by 5pm today Fri 3/8, please. -Tom

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
