Enjoy the beauty of the Ipswich River by canoe under the light of the full moon. We'll watch for ducks, herons, and other birds, as well as bats flitting above the water. We might see beavers, muskrats, or river otters swimming by or feeding at the river's edge. As the light fades, we will listen for owls calling and the sounds of other nocturnal animals. We'll stop on one of the islands to enjoy a campfire and snacks. The full moon will light our way on our return paddle to the canoe landing.
