Event Description

Get out on the water this summer through this fun introductory evening paddle. Join Lussier Family Heritage Center staff in this relaxing Lake Waubesa paddle that is fun for the entire family. Learn canoe paddle strokes, practice gaining comfort in a canoe, and enjoy a late afternoon paddle on Dane County waterways.

This event is free if you bring your own boat. We have six canoes available to rent for $20 each. Each canoe can hold up to two adults (paddling) and 1-2 children if seated. A PFD must be worn at all times while out on the water. Rental boats will include PFDs.

The route is about 2.5 miles long. It is a fairly easy paddle as long as there aren't any obstacles to navigate around.
