Guided Kayak Trips

October 5th at 5:30pm
October 15th at 1:00pm
October 19th at 5:30pm

An ACA certified Kayak Instructor and Naturalist will guide you through basic kayak instruction and then lead you on a paddle to explore the watershed of Marshy Creek. While kayaking, you may encounter wading birds, waterfowl, and migratory raptors hunting the marshlands. Other common sightings include otter, muskrat, terrapin turtles, mating cownose stingrays, schooling silversides, undulating jellyfish and slithery water snakes! If nothing else, the ebb and flow of the tide through gently swaying marsh grass is the sure remedy for nature-deficit disorder! Guided trips are offered three times a month from May through October during the 2017 season. These trips are for beginner to intermediate kayakers and include instruction on equipment, paddling/safety techniques, and loading and unloading the vessels. The experience will give you up to two hours of paddling time with a self-provided snack break at the halfway point.

Guided Hike: Meditation in Nature “Forest Bathing

October 12th at 1pm

Join us for a guided hike on CBEC’s Lake Trail for this unique opportunity to appreciate some of the natural features and treasures found on our property.  Along our journey, we’ll practice “Forest Bathing”, a mindfulness approach that helps us deepen our engagement with nature through attentiveness, noticing, silence and stillness.  With a Meditative Facilitator serving as guide, we’ll pause along the trail to immerse ourselves in each habitat experience.  The trail is a 1.5 mile flat path around the center of our 510 acre peninsula, with a half-way rest stop with restroom accessibility.  Participants are encouraged to dress for weather and bring along a water bottle, small snack, and binoculars. Duration is approximately 2 hours. Trips are subject to cancellation due to weather or low enrollment. Check-in and hike begin at the Visitor Center.

Cost is FREE to CBEC Members, $5 for Non Members
