Environmental Program gets new Canoes

New canoes

Lori sent out this note about some new canoes in the impoundment.  We have had a blast using the old canoes, and I hear that the new ones don’t leak and have three seats.  Canoes are first-come, first-served, and there for the use of everyone.  We’ve gotten some great photos and baitfish while in a canoe!  Here are some guidelines for use:

      Canoes are for use only in the Impoundment.
·         Leave your dog at home.
·         A pfd (personal floatation device) must be on board for each person 12 years and older.
·         Children under 12 years old must wear a pfd.
·         Stay 60 feet away from all alligators.
·         Keep arms and legs inside of the canoe.
·         Paddle wide in creek bends as not to surprise a basking alligator.
·         Stay back from overgrown shorelines.
·         Paddle during daylight hours only.
