Do some birding from the water with an early morning kayak adventure at Lake Accotink or Burke Lake Park.
With a naturalist as your guide, paddle across the water on a single-person kayak and try to spot some of the dozens of bird species that call these lakes home. Get a different perspective on their unique habitats from the water and see how you can use kayaks for a closer look into the world of birds. You can go birding by kayak four Fridays in October. The program runs on Oct. 9 and Oct. 23, 2020, from 7 to 9 a.m. at Lake Accotink Park. It runs Oct. 16 and Oct. 30, 2020 from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. at Burke Lake Park.
The “Birding by Kayak-Single” adventure is designed for participants age 13 to adult. The cost is $42 per person.
Individuals age 2 and older are required to wear a mask or face covering when indoors at Park Authority facilities.
