PLEASE REGISTER and PAY (just $25!) for this 90 minute Outdoor Discovery Course at llbean.com/skokie (http://www.llbean.com/skokie) (scroll down the Event Calendar and click this event!) You DO NOT USE Meetup RSVP to pay. You can also call the store [[masked] ] with any questions. Exploring nature in a kayak is a healthy and fun way to enjoy the outdoors. Our group course begins with a brief introduction and safety talk from our friendly paddling instructors. We'll outfit each person with a personal flotation device (PFD) and paddle. Then we'll instruct you on paddling forward, turning and stopping, and seat you in a kayak. After you feel comfortable on the water, you'll set out on a guided paddle with the group. You'll experience the freedom of skimming across the water, learning about the ecosystem and history of the area.
