Location Description:

Kayaking isnat the usual pour-out-your-volunteering-heart cause, but for some pleasant reason, the Downtown Boathouse attracts enough volunteers and donations to offer totally free lessons, tours, equipment, and day trips. If youare really itching to put some money down, "memberships" are $50 a year, but offer no perks whatsoever. Hmma| See website for additional locations.
