This group will supplement other Long Island groups that reach out to individuals who enjoy the outdoors, particularly canoeing and kayaking. It is not intended to compete with, but rather, to offer additional options. My goal is to offer any member the option of listing an event and inviting others to join them. Each of us would accept responsibility for ourselves. I for example might list my intention to kayak 10:00 am Tuesday 10/18 at Orient Point and invite any and all to join me. Or I might ask other members for a location and give some dates I would be available. I'm trying to increase options and decrease restrictions. Shared leadership.
