Free program is teaching paddle movements, proper PFD floating, and more

BELLEVUE, Wis. (WFRV) – Have you ever wanted to learn to kayak or just need an excuse to sharpen your skills?

A kayaking program is making its way to Lily County Park and it’s free to the public! It’s called ‘Get Your Feet Wet’ and it will have visitors doing just that. By registering for the program, you can learn more about recreational kayaking by joining a certified ACA instructor on Lily Lake. The program is made possible through a partnership between the Brown County Parks Department and the Barkhausen Waterfowl Preserve.

“I think I have never met a person that never enjoyed their kayaking experience,” says Dani Wagner, Assistant Naturalist at Barkhausen Waterfowl Preserve. “There’s a lot of people I know that wanted to even test it out before maybe even purchasing it or go to another spot to go kayaking. This is just a great way for you to just try it out and see if it’s a good fit for you.”

Those who register will have the chance to try kayaking, learn a variety of paddle strokes, proper PFD floating, and much more. If you don’t have any of your own equipment, that’s okay. Launch fees, paddles, and boats will all be provided during the allotted time.

Registration is required ahead of time and there are four options of a one-hour time slot to register for. In case you can’t make today’s program, there will also be guided tours throughout the month of July coming up as well as August.

You can find more information online right here as well as by heading over to the Brown County Parks Department Facebook page.
