The Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission and Maurice K. Goddard State Park will host a family paddling program July 1 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Lake Wilhelm, Mercer County.
The program is designed for families with children ages 8 and older who are new to paddling. Participants will learn about regulations, equipment, and paddling safety skills during a brief on-shore lesson. The remainder of this will take place on the water in canoes practicing paddling strokes, self rescue, and other safety skills.
Canoes, kayaks, paddles, and personal flotation devices will be provided. Participants should be prepared to get wet, and should pack water, lunch, sun block, sun glasses, and snug-fitting foot protection — flip-flops are not permitted). Foot protection and life jackets must be worn at all times
Pre-registration is required and will be accepted until June 30. Space is limited.
