        Glow Paddlers will check-in and begin paddling from Rowing Dock. Paddlers will make their way downstream to 1st Street Bridge where they will turn around and head back upstream to Rowing Dock (a grand total of 3.6 miles).

        Flatwater Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing access to mental health services for families and individuals affected by cancer. To learn more, please visit FlatwaterFoundation.org.

        We’re in prime bat watching season! While hundreds gather on the top of the bridge, it’s a pretty incredible experience to see from the water, not to mention great for pictures!

        The total trip is a 4-mile paddle, which is actually pretty bearable. As the sun sets you get an incredible view of our skyline.

        Evening paddling on the lake is so relaxing and helps you appreciate the city just a little more.

        If this doesn’t work out also check out the event they are having Sunday morning, Paddle for Puppies!
