Island Hopping The Cedar Keys

Nature still rules in the Cedar Keys area of Florida’s Big Bend. It’s a low, wet country where land merges gradually with the sea, shrinking and expanding with the ebb and flow of tides. Shore birds, dolphins, horseshoe crabs and a menagerie of plant and animal species make this a fascinating area to explore by kayak. Difficulty: Moderate paddle on open water. Three hours of paddling may be tiring to some. Skill level: Good for beginners and pros alike. Basic instructions given for beginners.

Good for beginners, basic lessons included. SPO0005.1B6 1 Sat., starts 10/10, 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. Instructor: Lars Andersen CROSS CREEK FEE $59 NOTE: No sr. waivers.

Suncoast Keys: World of Mangroves

Salt water environments require interesting adaptions of the many species that live in them. Nowhere in North‑Central Florida are these adaptations more beautifully revealed than in mangrove forests of the Suncoast Keys on the Gulf Coast. The same conditions that make this area ideal for mangroves‑‑shallow, calm water with numerous islands‑‑also make it ideal for kayak exploration. Difficulty: Easy paddle on calm, open water. Three hours of paddling may be tiring to some. NAT0031.1B6 1 Sat., starts 9/19, 9 - 11:30 a.m. Instructor: Lars Andersen CRYSTAL RIVER FEE $59 NOTE: No sr. waivers. Good for beginners, basic lessons provided. Directions emailed 1‑2 days before trip. You must call Adventure Outpost 386-454‑0611 at least 2 days before trip to discuss boat preference (canoe, kayak or tandem kayak), or call them if you have any questions.

PLEASE NOTE: During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the following minor adjustments to our tour procedures: · All boats, paddles, vests and gear are wiped down or sprayed with disinfectant between each tour. · To allow natural distancing between kayaks and canoes, we are limiting group size to 14 people so we don’t cluster closely during on-water discussions or moments of nature interpretation. · We are not doing any tours that require shuttle in the confined space of a shuttle van. So, all tours are round trips that begin and end at the same launch site. · To minimize clustering at the ramp, we will forego our usual pre-paddle “map talk” until we are on the water. We will then gather loosely on the water, where I will give the overview of the river’s history, geology, archaeology, etc. (More of this information, as well as nature lore about plants, birds & other animals, is discussed throughout the tour.) · Experienced paddlers: Rather than launching all at once, we’ll have you launch individually, whenever you are geared-up and ready at the ramp. Expect to spend maybe 10 - 15 minutes piddle-paddling around in the general area of the launch site, until everyone has launched. (Could be a nice time to do some birding or just enjoying the beauty). Once everyone is on the water, we will re-group and head down the river. Anyone who would rather not spend these extra minutes on the water is welcome to stay on land and be among the last to launch. · Beginning paddlers: When you arrive at the launch site, please inform the instructor that you need basic lessons. We will have you stand off to the side until all beginners have arrived. I will then give basic lessons, while the experienced paddlers are launching at the ramp. We will then launch you individually and you will join the others already on the water. Thank you for your cooperation. Strange times call for creative planning.

Preparing for a Zoom Meeting Days Before · Remember to download and install the Zoom launcher (PC/Mac) or the app (iOS/Android) in advance, as it can take several minutes to complete. · Review Zoom instructions via the external Zoom link found in Canvas. More information can also be found at Zoom’s Getting Started page. · Join a Zoom Test Meeting to confirm your computer or device’s capabilities.

15 Minutes Before · Find a quiet space with strong WiFi that is free of distractions. · Open Zoom via the downloaded program, app or Canvas. · Test your headphones, microphone and camera to make sure the class can hear and see you (and vice versa). · Close any windows or programs open on your device that are unrelated to your meeting. This focuses your device’s power to provide the best Zoom meeting experience possible, and prevents potential embarrassing moments if you happen to share your screen. Do you really want your instructor to know how many cat videos you actually watch?

During the Zoom Meeting · Click Start Video to begin broadcasting from your webcam. · Click the Chat bubble to ask questions via text, share links to websites, and keep up with the class’s back-channel discussion. You can chat to everyone in the meeting, just the instructor, or a specific person. · Find out who else is in the meeting by clicking Participants. This is also where you can “raise your hand” to ask a question, answer a question, or start an intense philosophical debate. What you do with this power is up to you. · Be prepared to share your screen with the class. They can see the tabs you have open. · At the end of the class, click Leave Meeting.

Zoom On-Camera Tips · Getting clear video is a lot like taking a good selfie — it’s all about contrast. Light your face more brightly than the background to make it easier to see you. · Hold your head high in the picture frame. It conveys confidence. · Keep your clothing PG and professional. · Be yourself. Move physically and make facial expressions. · Microphones pick up all ambient noise, so keep your mic muted until it’s your time to speak.

No matter how many people are in a meeting, there’s probably someone watching your video at all times. It could be your instructor. It could be your classmate’s dog. Doing something embarrassing or distracting, like flossing, eating or using your camera to see if you have food in your teeth will probably be seen, no matter how quickly you do it. Don’t be that person.

· Remember that when on-camera, other activities such as eating, drinking, shuffling papers, etc. are extremely distracting (and sometimes unflattering). · If you can’t use video, upload a nice profile image of your face to your Zoom Account. · Have fun!
