Here's a chance to see the Wildlife Refuge from the water

Shuttle service is available between the Van Stop and the kayak dock.
Reservations are required; please sign up at the Information Booth.

This one-hour event (40 minutes on the water) is led by naturalists on Cedar Lake Creek, a bayou that forms the western boundary of parts of Brazoria County and of the San Bernard National Wildlife Refuge.   Much of this stretch of the creek is forested, although some sections are prairie, so the wildlife spotted can be quite diverse and includes raptors.   Participants must be 18 years of age or older, or if 12 to 18, must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Reservations are required.   Sign up at the Information Booth to reserve a time slot.

The Kayak Dock shuttle van will depart from the Van Stop 1/2 hour before each scheduled kayaking time slot.   Each cruise will begin with instructions on basic kayaking technique and safety practices.   Please note:
   •  A life vest will be issued to each participant.
   •  Shoes are required.   Participants will get their feet wet, and should plan their footwear accordingly.
   •  Participants should pack valuables (electronics, car keys, cell phones, cameras) in waterproof packaging, or arrange to leave these items ashore.
   •  Binoculars, sunscreen, hats, insect repellent, and long-sleeved shirts are recommended.
