Tuesday Sunset Boating for Members, June 13 (2017)

June 13, 2017 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Bartram’s Garden
5400 Lindbergh Blvd.
Philadelphia, 19143 United States

A special benefit for members of Bartram’s Garden, this 80-minute flatwater, small-group paddle is from the Bartram’s Garden Community Boathouse to Center City and back. Kayaks, paddles, life jackets, headlamps, and very basic instruction are provided. Volunteers also accompany group as safety boaters. Children under 11 must be accompanied by an adult in a tandem kayak. Kayaking experience is not necessary, but expect moderate physical exertion. To get to the boathouse, walk past the free parking area onto the meadow trail, which leads downhill to the Boathouse (click here for a map).

On chilly days, dress in clothes that will keep you warm even if they get wet; avoid cotton and heavy shoes—wool, silk, and synthetic materials are best. Bring water. Arrive on time; we push off from the dock at promptly at 6:40 pm.

Cost is free for members, but participants must register in advance, by 12pm day-of, and sign the liability waiver (link below).
