Before the kids are back in school, enjoy a late morning of paddling and discovery on Hastings Lake. An Environmental Educator will be with you on the water to answer your nature questions. Suitable for beginners, although paddling experience is preferred.

Brief on-land paddling instruction is provided prior to launching the canoes. Cost includes tandem canoe, paddle, life jacket, dry bag.




Park in either the car-top launch lot or the lot by the playground and walk to the sandy launch.

Wear quick-dry clothes (no jeans, no 100% cotton fabric) and shoes with a heel strap and closed toes that will get wet (no flip-flops, Crocs or slides). Bring a water bottle.

Each participant must sign the waivers and wear a life jacket properly when on the water.

Contact Environmental Educator, Jenny Sazama 847-276-5382, with questions or to inquire about accommodations.
