About the event
With thousands of acres protected by the Door County Land Trust and The Nature Conservancy, North Bay State Natural Area is one of Door County’s ecological gems. Paddle along with us and we’ll explore it all from the water! Along the way, pending lake levels, we’ll visit the mouth of Three Springs Creek where it empties into North Bay and cross the bay to take a short hike into the towering white pines and sea caves of the Door County Land Trust’s Walt’s Woods Natural Area. North Bay’s stretch of largely undeveloped Lake Michigan shoreline is home to a host of bird species including; Bald Eagles, Osprey, Goldeneye Ducks, Sandhill Cranes, pelicans, Great Egrets, and Caspian Terns and its streams and bay are critical spawning areas for northern pike, white suckers and whitefish. All participants must provide their own 14’ or longer kayak with a spray skirt (no exceptions) and have previous open water kayaking experience. Tour will cover 4-5 miles. You can rent kayaks from Bayshore Outdoor Store in Sister Bay that meet these safety requirements. Suitable for ages 18 and up.
