Location: Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary, Topsfield

Join us for the afternoon to learn or brush up on basic paddling strokes such as the forward and back paddle, sweep, draw, and j-stroke. Learning how to make these strokes correctly will enable you to control your canoe with far less effort. We'll practice on land and in the backwaters, and then canoe the river to enjoy the sights and sounds of a spring afternoon.
Instructions and Directions: Meets in front of the Visitor Center. Young adults 12 to 17 years old are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult. We will provide canoes, paddles, and PFDs. A confirmation with information on what to bring will be sent. Limited to 12.
