March 9: Guided Wekiva River Paddle


March 9: Guided Wekiva River Paddle

Members of Friends of the Wekiva River will lead a paddle from Kings Landing to Kelly Park via Emerald Cut. This is a beautiful section of river that you may not have experienced. This is an advanced beginner paddle. We paddle up stream first. There are a few trees/logs to negotiate although not too difficult. Also, if you choose, you may continue downstream past Kings Landing and paddle back up.
