Paddle the L.A. River: Canoe & Kayak Trips Start August 13th
Okay, so they are about a month behind their original estimate, but now we have a date and some contact info to share with you: Canoe and kayak trips on the Los Angeles River will run weekends from August 13th to September 25th, and reservations will be open soon.
With a website poised to launch at Noon today, Paddle the L.A. River is teasing would-be urban adventurists with info that the supervised canoe and kayak trips will be on 1.5 miles of the river at the Sepulveda Basin in the Valley.
Tickets will be available for purchase on their site, and until it goes live (soon, so soon!) you can put in your email to sign up for reminders.
