The Sierra State Parks Foundation will wave goodbye to the waning days of summer with a final full moon kayak excursion this weekend.

The paddle takes place starting at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Sugar Pine Point State Park near Meeks Bay.

“Leaving from Sugar Pine Point State Park, there is no better way to get on the water, learn about our natural and cultural history and support the Sierra State Parks Foundation,” said Heidi Doyle, executive director of the Sierra State Parks Foundation, in an email. “West Shore Sports partners with California State Parks to offer a unique kayak tour along Sugar Pine Point: From the highest elevation lighthouse in the U.S. to the parks’ southern boundary. Park staff will guide you for a memorable evening and no experience is necessary.”

This 90-minute tour launches from the North Boathouse located in the day-use side of Sugar Pine Point State.

The full-moon hike costs $40 and includes parking, kayak rental, a life jacket and safety training. Reservations are required and can be made by calling 530-525-9920.

The Sierra State Parks Foundation mission is to provide support to the Lake Tahoe-Truckee region state parks for education, interpretation, restoration and cultural and environmental preservation.
