    If you and your pooch are experienced, well mannered kayakers, plan to join Lee County Parks & Recreation for an outing Rover won't forget on the Calusa Blueway Paddling Trail.

    Four-pawed and two-legged participants will meet at the kayak launch across from Dog Beach on Estero Boulevard just south of Lover's Key. No dogs over 100 pounds are permitted and only one dog per kayak is OK.

    Sign up in advance for the two-hour, 10 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 16, event. Cost is $40 per person and includes all the necessary human gear and boats, provided by Kayak Excursions. Dogs' participation is free, but canine companions must supply their own life vest and wear them. Register by Sept. 14 at www.leeparks.org or call (239) 533-7440. Those with their own kayaks pay $20 and register at the same number; then they must call (239) 229-0559 so parks staff knows what type of kayaks they are bringing.
