Stand-up paddling is a fun way to explore our waterways, improve your balance, and get a fantastic core body workout. The Lloyd Center for the Environment‘s intro session with an Osprey Sea Kayak Adventures instructor will take place in the calm waters of the Slocums River. All the basics will be covered: getting familiar with equipment, water entry and balance, proper stance and positioning on the board, efficient paddling technique, and safety. Come out and give it a try… you’ll love it!

Wear clothing and footwear that you don’t mind getting wet and bring a non-alcoholic beverage. Preregistration required by noon on Friday, July 16.

Cost: $50 Lloyd Center members, $60 nonmembers
