Group Kayak and Picnic Event

-A A +A

The Friends of the Lower Suwannee and Cedar Keys National Wildlife Refuges will hold a Group Paddle and Picnic in the Town of Suwannee. Join us for an easy (beginners welcome), short (3.8 miles, 2 hours), fresh water paddle on Lock Creek, through riverine swamp along the Suwannee River.
   The group will meet at 9:30 a.m. at the public boat ramp on CR 349, in Suwannee, just north of Anderson Landing Campground. Park across the highway in the gravel parking lot.  The Friends will have printed panels available showing the Lock Creek Trail and will review them with paddlers before the event. We will each pair up with one or two other paddlers to look out for each other during the trip.
   Bring your own kayak or rent one in town. Bring a lunch and we will gather after the paddle to eat together at the community center just down the road, across the highway from Salt Creek restaurant.
   The event is weather dependent. For more information, e-mail friends@friendsofrefuges.org.
