Calusa Blueway speaker series to present next program
The fourth in a series of free Calusa Blueway-related programs will be “Exploring the Calusa Blueway; Safety Gear and Equipment” on March 5 at 6:30 p.m. at Wa-Ke Hatchee Recreation Center, at 16760 Bass Road, Fort Myers.
The National Safe Boating Council Executive Director Peg Phillips and Florida Kayak School owner Tommy Thompson will share stories about paddling in Florida and discuss safety techniques and equipment. They will also lead a group paddle on the morning of the program.
“This is going to be a very fun and engaging program highlighting kayaking safety,” Calusa Blueway Coordinator Mike Hammond said. “Peg and Tommy are bringing many years of paddling and water experience. Their individual programs were both very popular and having these two combined is going to be exciting.”
