Summer Paddling Events

July 7 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Jasper County Conservation Board received $8,000 from the Jasper Community Foundation to purchase ten stand-up paddleboards for use in public programming. According to Katie Cantu, Naturalist with Jasper County Conservation, “Paddleboarding has become a popular sport and JCCB is excited to offer this option at our events.” Prior to this, paddleboards had been borrowed from Warren County Conservation Board and usage was limited to one week in the summer. Now, paddleboarding and kayaking will be offered at all public events and at the watersports youth summer camps.

 

Paddleboards and kayaks are available for rent at programs throughout the summer.  There will be lake paddles at Jacob Krumm Nature Preserve on June 4 from 10:00am-12:00pm, and on June 8, June 22, July 7 and July 12, all from 6:00-8:00pm. Two public paddles will be at Mariposa Park on July 21 and July 26, both from 6:00-8:00pm. These programs are for those who wish to try the equipment out, sharpen their paddling skills, and enjoy being on the water.  

 

To participate, you must pre-register by filling out a registration form found on JCCB’s website at www.jaspercountyconservation.com.  All registration forms need to be returned to the Jasper County Conservation’s office prior to the events at 1030 W. 2nd St. S. in Newton.  There is a small fee of $5/person for use of the equipment that can be paid the day of the event.  A limited number of boats are available. Lifejackets will be provided.
