State park rangers to lead moonlit kayak tour

TAHOE, Calif. — Navigating your kayak by moonlight is a mystical experience you won’t soon forget. Join California State Park rangers and West Shore Sports at Ed Z’berg-Sugar Pine Point State Park, July 2, for a kayak tour watching for a grand view of the moon rising into the night’s sky while learning about the area’s unique history. The atmosphere is peaceful and calming, yet spectacular. Paddle leisurely while admiring the moon’s silvery light reflecting off the water’s surface. Bring your friends and family for a moonlit evening on Lake Tahoe.

No experience is necessary and this activity is suitable for all ages. The tour is $25 per person and includes park entrance, kayak rental, life vests and instruction. Wear synthetic clothing rather than cotton (swimsuit, shirt, shorts, lightweight pants, jacket and warm cap). Bring water, retainer strap for glasses and water shoes. Proceeds benefit the Sierra State Parks Foundation. Meet at the North Boathouse on the day use side of Sugar Pine Point State Park at 7:30 p.m. for the two-hour adventure. Reservations are required at 530-525-9520 and space is limited.
