Backyard Session Paddle, Phoenix

Come join the Daring Adventures program at Maricopa County Parks and Recreation Department's Lake Pleasant for a kayaking adventure. Kayaking is relaxing, adventurous and most importantly, fun. Gliding free across the water, seeing wildlife and recreating with friends are some of the best reasons for kayaking! No previous experience is necessary as our instructors will teach you all there is to know about kayaking. This short instruction session will ensure that you have more fun, gain confidence and excel on the water. Our guides will lead these excursions, getting up close and personal with native plant life while looking and listening for different types of wildlife.

Come to the Desert Outdoor Center and meet up with the Leave No Trace program guide to learn how you can reduce your impact when enjoying the outdoors in the Leave No Trace Backyard Session. Backyard Sessions are social events where all types of Leave no Trace supporters, members, volunteers and partners will gather. During this paddle we will be exploring the beautiful scenery the lake has to offer while enjoying good company and gathering lake litter. Using the seven Leave No Trace principles you will learn how to enjoy kayaking without leaving an environmental impact.
