Nature center features regular paddling activities

   The Matagorda County Birding Nature Center’s pier is the host site for the following ‘free’ paddling activities which are scheduled to routinely take place from now through early November; weather permitting.  
     The non-profit Nature Center does not rent kayaks, nor does it assume responsibility for the safety and well-being of those participating in these no-sponsor, no-fee, meet-ups of paddlers.  
     MCBNC members are eligible to check out a single or tandem kayak from the MCBNC’s fleet on a no-cost, first-come basis (annual dues are only $20/person or $30/family) for these events.   
     Non-members must bring their own kayak, canoe or stand-up paddleboard, and are asked pay the $3/person or $5/carload entry fee. 
   Call 979-240-4872 to verify the plans and details for these come-when-you-can waterborne events. 
   Fitness Afloat - A brisk two-hour paddle on the Colorado every Monday at 6:30 a.m. for those focused on physical conditioning and spiritual awakening in the Great Outdoors as part of an informal, no-charge, meet-up group. 
   Weather permitting; this activity is scheduled to take place from now through early November. 
   Fun Time on the Water – A leisurely, no-charge meet-up of paddlers every Thursday afternoon for an enjoyable outing on the Colorado River.  
   Participants may launch anytime from 5:15 to 6:00 p.m. and stay out until dark.  
   Moonlight Magic – A monthly nighttime float trip to soak up the mystical powers of full-moon lunar illumination.  
     Check the calendar for the specific date of the full moon.  
     Designated launch times and recommended items to bring should be verified by phone.
