Moonlight Paddle!

Join us at Lake Gardner for a beautiful moonlight paddle on Friday, September 22nd. Our event takes place under the "Long", or "Corn" full moon. and we will meet in the Lake Gardner beach at 7 to launch our kayaks, canoes or paddleboards so that we can get our paddles in the water. Moonrise is at 7, and it takes about an hour for the moon to climb over Powow Hill, so we'll have time to paddle leisurely up to Camp Kent Nature Center, exploring the shoreline as we go before we witness the moon appear above our familiar hilltop.
Please note that this is a BYOB, or, Bring Your Own Boat event and this is a dusk event, which means headlamps or portable lights for the boats, as well as DEET mosquito repellent are recommended.
This event requires clear skies and will be canceled if overcast or stormy.
