What: Wet Dogs it's time to give back to mother earth. We'll celebrate Earth Day with a nearby paddle clean up on Cross Bayou. The Bayou runs north and south along the lower end of Lake Seminole and is a awesome hidden paddling gem. Cross Bayou is fed by the the Gulf waters from John's pass along the inter-coastal waters near Bay Pines and runs up past Park Blvd. It spreads out towards the souther reaches of Lake Seminole and has numerous mangrove trails and islands. Trash gets caught up in these mangroves from the rain run off and high tides.
We'll put-in at the new kayak and canoe launch at the end of 102nd Ave in Pinellas Park and paddle down the bayou towards the Cajun Cafe located on Park Blvd. After the paddle cleanup we'll eat a late lunch at the Cajun Cafe. Beginners and up welcome.
Note: We'll have ten kayaks available for those needing a kayak. Please let us know whether you need a kayak or are bringing your own in your RSVP.
When: 10 am on Sunday, April 22nd
