Pictures: Banks Lake Full Strawberry Moon paddle 2021-06-24

Good turnout for a Thursday paddle! 26 paddlers enjoyed great weather, bats, and the Full Strawberry Moon through clouds at Banks Lake NWR.

It’s only $10 per paddler with free boat rental thanks to the Lakeland-Lanier Chamber of Commerce and Banks Lake Outdoors. Or the whole thing is free with WWALS membership, which starts at $25 individual or $40 family.

Embark

In the Suwannee Riverkeeper canoe, the official vessel, are WWALS President Tom H. Johnson Jr. and Mary Carolyn Pindar, who drove four hours from Pine Mountain, Georgia, to paddle. He’s also the Chair of the Songwriting Contest Committee, and she’s on it. Other Committee members paddling included Josh and Angela Duncan and me.
