The next meeting of the Mobile Bay Canoe & Kayak Club will be held on Tuesday Februrary 1, at 7:00 p.m., at the Fairhope Yacht Club. After our usual club business, Cara Lankford of the National Estuary Program will give a presentation. We understand that one focus of her presentation will be local oyster restoration, but Cara will also know the answers to a great many of the questions we kayakers, adventurers, and nature freaks always want to ask, so you will not want to miss this meeting.
PADDLING BUDDY WANTED FOR BIG BEND TRIP
I have heard from a paddler from Gadsden, Brian Westcott, who is preparing to go on a trip to Cape San Blas (and the St. Vincent Wildlife Refuge) and/or the Appalachicola area paddling trails. He's got a new boat, new gear, and has researched his trip, but he'd love to have the company of as many of our club members as are interested in joining him -- especially club members who have some experience with these areas.
As you know, many of us have paddled the Cape and St. Vincent's Refuge, and we know what a fantastic paddle it is and how helpful it is to have someone who knows the area show you the put-ins and take-outs and help you avoid the oyster reefs. And a couple of us have paddled Appalachicola with great pleasure. So if you're in a position to help Brian organize his trip and/or if you'd like to join him on this trip, e-mail Brian at firstname.lastname@example.org.
