Interested in boating but never been in a boat? I am helping teach a Paddling 101 class with the Birmingham Canoe Club on April 15! It will be from 9am -1pm at Oak Mountain Lake. The cost is $25.00.
Description: This four-hour workshop introduces beginners to canoeing and kayaking. It will be held near the swimming beach on Double Oak Lake (in the Day Use Area) at Oak Mountain State Park. Information taught during the class includes: information on the different types of boats, proper strokes, paddling safety, how to transport your boat, outfitting and more. Bring your own boat, or use one of ours. We will have tandem and solo canoes, touring and recreational kayaks, sit-on-tops and whitewater kayaks.
