BIRDING BY KAYAK
Take a guided kayak tour through the Lake Worth Lagoon to Munyon Island with an eye on the estuary birds and migratory songbirds on the island. The kayak tour leaves 9 a.m. Sunday from John D. MacArthur Beach State Park, 10900 Jack Nicklaus Drive in North Palm Beach.
The park asks that you bring a water bottle, binoculars, closed-toe water shoes and a favorite birding guide that you don’t mind getting wet. Pay at the ranger station a half hour before the tour starts. A two-hour kayak rental is $25 for a single or $40 for a kayak for two. The park entry fee is $5 per vehicle.
Space is limited. Call 561-624-6952 for a reservation or more information.
FREE TAI CHI
Before strolling through the Gardens GreenMarket, people of all ages can try free tai chi. The ancient Chinese exercise is said to be good for mental and physical health, including heart and lung capacity.
The tai chi is 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. Sundays through May 6 at the Veterans Plaza Amphitheater, 10500 North Military Trail in Palm Beach Gardens. Palm Beach Heartstrong is offering the classes with Palm Beach Gardens. People younger than 16 must be accompanied by a parent.
BE SAFE WHILE BOATING
A weekend in a classroom now could save a life out on the open water later. Palm Beach Power Squadron’s safe boating class is Saturday and Sunday at the squadron’s headquarters in Lake Park. The class covers knowing your boat, fueling procedures, navigation rules, anchoring, emergencies and other topics.
Registration is 8:15 a.m. Saturday at the headquarters, 1125 Old Dixie Highway, 1/2 mile south of Northlake Boulevard. The class runs until 4 p.m. Saturday. There will be a review and 60-question exam starting 2 p.m. Sunday. Passing the test earns a Florida Boating Safety Education ID card, which is required by the state for everyone born after Jan. 1, 1988 operating a boat with a motor of 10 hp or more.
The class is $30 per person, but those 12 to 19 years old are free when accompanied by a parent. Call Bill Eldridge for more information: 561-254-5609.
