Meet trip leader Matt Bruce at Kate’s Fish Camp on Hawthorne Road at Prairie Creek. Going east on Hawthorne Road, drive past Powers Park and 0.7 mile later, just before the bridge, turn left into Kate’s. If you’ve got a canoe or kayak, bring it ($5 launching fee); if you don’t, Kate’s has a limited number you can rent (one-person kayak $15, canoe $20). Email Matt at email@example.com if you plan to rent. Depending on the water levels, we’ll paddle along the lakeshore and/or down Prairie Creek, keeping an eye out for Prothonotary Warblers, Limpkins, and other swamp-loving birds.
Difficulty: 3 (may involve elevation change, uneven terrain, and/or walking distances greater than two miles).
