Cost: free but if you sign up please commit to be there otherwise it is taking a valuable spot that someone else would love to have!

This safety class is funded by grants that DRBA secured to empower and educate our watershed paddlers and want to be paddlers about things you need to know before heading out!
The exact launch location will be emailed out to participants a few days prior. This class will be in Stokes County on Hanging Rock State Park lake.

What to Bring
– Water in a reusable, sealable bottle (no single-use plastic please!)

– Insect repellent if needed
– Closed-toed shoes that can get wet and muddy (old sneakers are fine, no flip flops or strappy sandals with no toe box)
– Snack
*If you do not have an appropriate kayak, PFD, paddle, we will provide this for you but you must sign up as using ours.*

If you have your own kayak it is best you use it so you know how it will perform and allow those without a kayak to utilize ours. Appropriate kayak for this event is a sit inside or sit on top 10ft-14ft. of good quality
Four participants are required to run the event, with a max of 10 people.
Weather Policy: If we have to cancel at the water due to extreme weather, we will make all efforts for the event to be rescheduled, or participants moved to another date that has availability.
