Enjoy the beauty of the Ipswich River by canoe on the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere. While paddling the slow flowing, winding river we'll watch for egrets, hawks, herons, and other birds. It's possible we'll also see beavers, or muskrats feeding at the river's edge and turtles relaxing on logs. We'll stop on an island, stretch our legs and enjoy a campfire, snacks, and a cool drink.

Instructions and Directions:

Meets in front of the Visitor Center. All equipment will be provided. Participants should have some canoeing experience. Wear footwear appropriate for muddy, uneven trails. Bring a water bottle, binoculars and drybag if you have one for personal items.
