Paddling includes kayaking, canoeing and even standup paddling on lakes, river or small streams. Everyone seems to have a kayak on the top of their car these days. You can buy a canoe, kayak or stand up paddleboard at your local sports outfitter, but what do you do with it once you buy it? Find a program that teaches you the mechanics or getting it in the water, paddling it and what you do if it tips! Paddling is a beautiful way to experience the outdoors while viewing wildlife or fishing, or just exploring a stream through the woods. There are even opportunities to canoe to a cultural event at a park and ride a bike back to your starting point. Check out the opportunities now!
