Tour the Arboretum Wetlands by Kayak in August and September
For the third year in a row, UW Botanic Gardens is partnering with the Agua Verde Paddle Club to offer guided kayak tours of the wetlands around Foster Island. The 90-minute tours will push off from Duck Bay at the north end of the Arboretum at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. on August 29 and 30, as well as September 5, 6, and 7. Guests will learn about the history of the wetlands and have a chance to meet some of its plant and animal residents. The fee is $30 per person. All proceeds go to the Agua Verde Scholarship Fund, which helps provide educational opportunities at UWBG to schools with limited resources.
