CT Trails Day Paddle at Essex Coves
June 3 @ 8:45 am - 11:30 am
Join the Connecticut River Museum for their first guided paddle of the season. The launch will be from the Essex Town boat launch and paddle the quiet coves of Essex. Learn about historical events and figures, explore the ecology of the tidal marshes and hopefully spot beautiful birds from eagles and osprey to herons, egrets, and songbirds.
Free admission to the Museum for program participants (Sunday only).
You will provide your own canoe, kayak, or non-motorized craft and your safety equipment (including Personal Flotation Devices) for this family-friendly paddle along the CT River. The museum has a limited number of canoes, kayaks, and SUPs for rent. For rentals, contact Suzanne at 860-767-7028, x 121. Pre-registration is required. Space is limited.
Water, snack, sunscreen, insect repellent, and binoculars are highly recommended. Feel free to bring-your-own-lunch and picnic on the lawn at the Connecticut River Museum (CRM) upon return.
