Give Hobie-style kayaking a try

PATOKA RESERVOIR — Join the team from Sun Valley Sports between noon and 5 p.m. Sunday, June 2, to try Hobie-style kayaking. These peddle-driven kayaks are for people with lesser upper body strength or prior injuries that prevent enjoyment of a typical kayak. There will be multiple models of Hobie kayaks, including a sailboat-style kayak.

This free event is being offered in partnership with the Nature Center and will take place at the small craft boat launch located near the beach. No registration is needed; meet at the ramp for a short program, demonstration and a little water time. LIfe jackets will be provided.

The entrance fee of $7 per vehicle for Indiana residents is required for the Newton-Stewart State Recreation Area.

For more information regarding this program or other interpretive events, call the visitors center at 812-685-2447.
