Last year was the ACC's inaugural 50+ kayak trip. It was a gorgeous morning on the Willamette River and was so much fun. This year we decided to mix it up a bit and try the Tualatin River by meeting up at Brown's Ferry Park. Brown's Ferry Park is a quiet nature park at 5855 SW Nyberg Lane, with great bird watching opportunities. This trip is open to anyone and everyone, with or without experience. The experts of Alder Creek guide the trip; they also provide the kayak rentals, which is included in your fee. Kayaking is a fun and easy way to enjoy the river. The trip is Tuesday, Sept. 8; it starts at 8:30 a.m. and concludes around 11 a.m. We meet at Brown's Ferry Park, all kayaks, life vest and gear will be provided along with a few safety tips and a briefing on technique. The fee is $73 for residents and $92 for non-residents to enjoy paddling up and down the Tualatin River. Again, no experience is necessary, register on-line through Parks and Recreation at www.loparks.org or call the ACC at 503-635-3758.
