Join Tuesday's Children in partnership with Outward Bound

for a unique and adventurous opportunity:

Everglades National Park|April 7 -14, 2012

Space is very limited. Ages 15-18.

Deadline to RSVP is 3/1/2012. Please contact Chrissy

at christine@tuesdayschildren.org or 516-562-9000.

Participant is responsible for roundtrip airfare. No program fee.

Imagine paddling through the Everglades while watching glorious sunsets, seeing exotic and abundant wildlife, remote wilderness and wide-open stretches of space. This area is much like a puzzle and a challenge to navigate.

The Everglades National Park is a premiere area for viewing wildlife. You will explore aquatic preserves, sharing the water with dolphins, manatees, jumping fish, horseshoe crabs, bioluminescence and mantra rays. The varied landscape includes mangrove tunnels, hardwood and tropical hammocks, salt and freshwater marshes, cypress swamps and dry prairies.

Survey your surroundings for important landmarks. Shoot a bearing with your compass. Use a chart to determine your location. Observe bald eagles, woodpeckers, osprey and belted kingfishers. Then paddle hard through rivers, bays and warm Gulf waters to your next destination.

Spend the night on a chickee at Pearl Bay or 'boarded up' on your canoes along Roberts River. Discover more about the rich cultural history of the area as you learn about the Calusa, Seminole and Miccosukee Native American tribes and other settlers who bravely ventured into this "last American frontier."

The expert staff at Outward Bound will teach you everything you need to know to travel comfortably--how to pack appropriately, set up tents, paddle a canoe and navigate using a nautical chart.

Again, please contact Chrissy at christine@tuesdayschildren.org with any questions.

The RSVP deadline is Thursday, March 1st. Spaces are limited, so please reply ASAP to secure your spot on this unique Tuesday's Children Outward Bound experience!
