Paddle & Hike On The Santa Fe With Tom Kay

This year’s rains and storms have kept the Santa Fe River running high. Depending on conditions, we will attempt to paddle a stretch of the upper Santa Fe River. It can be an adventure since there can be more than a few trees blocking the way. However, the scenery is spectacular, and we should see some wildlife. Be prepared to stop and hike as well to enjoy all the Santa Fe River Preserve has to offer.

NEW DATE: Paddle On Tuscawilla Preserve With Tom Kay

This year’s rains and storms have kept Lake Tuscawilla full. Depending on conditions, we will attempt to paddle out onto Lake Tuscawilla. The scenery is lovely with plenty of opportunity to bird. The paddle is not long or hard, and depending on conditions, may be more of a float than a paddle. RSVPs (contact info below) are required since we need to organize the boats – let us know if you have a kayak or canoe (or any extra boats you would be willing to let others borrow).
