Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks will host a community kayaking event at Spotted Eagle Lake in Miles City on Wednesday, July 18, from 6-9 p.m.
This will be an informal event, introducing people to the basics of safe kayaking before allowing them to paddle on the lake. Staff will be on the shore and on the lake to provide assistance.
There is a limited number of kayaks, so people should expect to take turns, adhere to time limits and stay within designated areas. People may drop in or leave anytime between 6 and 9 p.m., but time on the water will be first come, first serve. Repeat outings will be allowed if crafts are available.
No pre-registration is required, and there is no cost. Kayaks and life jackets will be provided. All participants must wear a life jacket and sign a waiver. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult, and children under 18 must have a guardian sign a waiver to participate. Paddling a kayak unassisted will be determined by the child’s age, size and ability. Parents can paddle with a child on some of the kayaks provided; however, is not recommended to bring infants aboard kayaks.
