Join us as we paddle one of REI's favorite places in Cook County. After basic kayak instruction, we'll take to the water and travel on Saganashkee Slough's serene waters. Depending on the time of year, the slough is a hotspot for a number of bird species, including loons, herons, grebes, mergansers and many more. A fisherman's paradise, the slough boasts lots of nooks and crannies for exploration. No kayaking experience necessary, but please bring a fondness for the natural world and spirit of discovery! An introduction to equipment and basic techniques will be provided prior to embarking on the journey.
