About the event




Nocatee Landing Paddle Launch

Nocatee Landing Trail, Ponte Vedra, FL

This road is not on Google Maps yet, please read directions below.

From Nocatee Parkway, go south three miles on Crosswater Parkway to a roundabout and then take the eastern exit onto Nocatee Landing Trail. You will see a small sign that says Nocatee Kayak Launch. The road is paved at first, and then turns to gravel, and the distance is approximately two miles. (If GPS takes you to the Del Webb neighborhood, keep driving south on Crosswater Parkway to the next roundabout).

Join Jax Dragonfly Academy as we learn how to safely use knives! We will whittle a walking stick or "forest poker" and then take it for a hike.

Activities include:

  • Learning how to safely use a knife or wood peeler
  • Learning how and why to whittle
  • Creating a walking stick or a "forest poker" (a stick good for poking into things during a hike)
  • Go on a hike to explore the forest and appreciate the many trees and plants that make wood

​Who is this for?

This program is appropriate for kids Ages 5-17. Each ticket purchased is for a program participant. If your child is able to grip a pencil, they can grip a blade. I have taught kids as young as 5 how to whittle using a wood peeler(vegetable peeler). As long as it is done safely, using a blade can give kids a sense of independence and responsibility, as well as to help train motor skills and focus and calm the mind.

This is not a drop off program. The length is approximately 90 minutes, but you may stay after the program to explore the park. Please wear bug spray and closed toed shoes for walking.
