Healthy Living: Kayaking in the Timucuan Preserve

October 12 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Experience the physical and mental benefits of recreating outdoors with this popular series for seniors which gets you outside to explore new parks and preserves, meet new people, and enjoy low-impact exercise.

Join Timucuan Parks Foundation for a kayak adventure in the Timucuan Preserve. Professional outfitter Kayak Amelia will give a short tutorial and go over safety for the day. We will paddle the kayaks on the Fort George River from the Alimacani boat ramp up to Kingsley Plantation (about 2-2.5 miles) where we will take a break, eat giant homemade chocolate chip cookies, take a short walk around the Plantation grounds, and paddle back. We will be looking for dolphins and birds and other wildlife along the way. (No paddling experience necessary.)

Free but registration required. Space is limited. Register by emailing [email protected]
