Please remember:

- Masks are optional, but at times will be required while we are on land

   when science programs are in session.

While at the site, if you need to cough/sneeze, cover your mouth with 

   the crook of your elbow.

If you are not feeling well, do not come to practice, STAY HOME.

- Always show up early to help with canoes.

- Dress appropriately for all types of weather, think layers. This is a  

   water sport and you will get wet.

- Bring proper hydration and food for a 2 hour practice.

- Help clean and return canoes and equipment.

- Keep our site clean. Dispose of trash in bins or take home

  for disposal.
