Note: There will also likely be one or two weekends in May 2020 to paddle on Wolf Section 2 (and possibly section 3) with the Instructor Trainer to help prepare and refresh skills on the river. The upcoming pool sessions are excellent opportunities to learn, practice, and prepare for the upcoming season.
