About the Event

This program is for participants ages 16 and up.

Description: It is the longest day of the year and there is no better way to celebrate the start of summer than with an early morning Kayak paddle! Join 2 of Ijams Nature Center’s guides for a 2-3 hour guided paddle as they share the unique wildlife, history, and scenery of the Tennessee River. This paddle will take participants in search of unique plants, animals, and geologic features along the river as well as introduce them to ongoing conservation efforts aimed at keeping the river healthy.

Materials Participants Should Bring: Comfortable shoes, hat, sunglasses, water bottle, snacks, weather appropriate clothing, sunscreen, and a hands-free way to carry everything. Clothes and shoes that dry fast or are ok getting wet are prefered. Kayaks, paddles, and Personal Flotation Devices will be provided; however, participants are welcome to bring their own.

Program Duration:  Program distance and length will depend on river conditions and participant ability.

Requirements: Participants must be at least 16 years old to participate. All participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult who is also participating in the program. Some Kayaking experience is prefered but all experience levels are welcome, the program will begin with a kayaking review.
