Lewis and Clark Outfitters is hosting a free kayak demo day on Saturday (June 15). People of all ages and skill levels are invited to Lake Fayetteville where they can take a kayak into the water for free.

Eli Wadkins with Lewis and Clark said he company was founded with the purpose of getting families to enjoy the outdoors.

“The feedback has been great. The kids are loving it, they’re just begging their parents to come back,” Wadkins said. “They see just how much fun it is to be outdoors rather than just inside all the time.”
