NCLL Program Explores Parks, Kayak Launch

Editors: Please note the July 11 registration deadline.

The Northern Center for Lifelong Learning will offer an informational tour of Lambros and LaBonte Parks, along with the accessible kayak launch. Jon Swenson, assistant director of the Marquette Parks and Recreation Department, will lead the program from 1-3 p.m. Wednesday, July 12 (rain date July 13).

Participants will meet at Clark Lambros Beach Park on N. Lakeshore Blvd. by the Dead River to learn about Marquette's newest park. They will venture across the street, where Allen Beauchamp will demonstrate the kayak launch, accessing his kayak from his wheelchair. The final stop will be LaBonte Park, a pocket park with a waterfall.

The cost is $3 for NCLL members and $8 for non-members. Register by July 11 at 227-2979. For more information, contact liaison Marge Forslin at 869-4791.
