Save the date! Great Peninsula Conservancy will host a tour of the McDermott Point Preserve on Sunday, April 21st from 10am-12pm. This new preserve is publicly accessible by non-motorized boat, so bring your own kayak and enjoy a short paddle to the Point where we’ll have the opportunity to learn about the history and future of this Key Peninsula gem. Special guests include the members of GPC’s 2023-2024 Forage Fish Survey Team, and Key Peninsula Historical Society’s Tim Kezelle. Social hour to follow at the Longbranch Marina!

Information about parking and boat launch sites will be provided to attendees who RSVP.

Accessibility: From the Longbranch Marina, the paddle is approximately a mile (estimated 30 minutes at average pace). From the 72nd Street Boat Launch, the paddle distances is approximately a half mile (estimated 10-15 minutes at average pace). Low tide is anticipated at 11:38 am, so we should be traveling with the tide both ways.
