The next meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 1st in the Longleaf Room at Five Rivers Delta Resource center. Phillip West and Caroline Harris of the City of Orange Beach Wind and Water Learning Center, will be our guest speakers. They will educate us on things such as---how the Center started, their future plans, and the current classes offered. They will also talk about the Orange Beach Canoe Trail, and how they hope to merge it into a Coastal Blueway partnering with surrounding/nearby cities.
Exciting news! The mini-slide show is back and will be presented by participants of Battle on the Bayou which was this past weekend. As always, it was an awesomely fun event and MBCKC did quite well!
*If you would like to present a "mini-slide show paddle report" during one of the monthly meetings, please contact Tracy Lannie. Members are encouraged to share their paddle trip in this style. Time allotted for these presentations are 5-7 minutes
