On kayaks, check out waterbirds like the ring-billed gull wintering on the lake downtown. Cormorants, coots, bufflehead, egrets, wood ducks, great blue heron, etc. Meet at Waller Creek Boathouse. Must be able to swim. PFD's (lifejackets) will be provided. Kayak rental is $10. We will cruise around in the Congress Avenue Bridge to I-35 bridge area.

If you want to bring your own kayak or canoe, you can launch at the Holiday Inn Boat Ramp near the I-35 bridge and paddle up to the docks to join us.
