We want you to enjoy the kayaks and chariot provided through contributions and grants. The tandem kayak is provided by a grant awarded through the Reeves Foundation. THANK you! Also our volunteers want to paddle with you! Here is how to get it started...

Check the calendar to see if the boats are available. If so, send an email to MadSCIplans@gmail.com with your reservation time and date and boat choice (single/tandem).
