Essex, CT —   On Saturday, September 17 from 9 a.m. to 12:00 noon, the public is invited to join Connecticut River Museum educators on a guided paddle in Lyme’s Lord’s Cove. 

The paddle will launch from the public boat landing adjacent to the Museum’s parking lot and cross the Connecticut River to the backwaters of the beautiful tidal wetlands of Lord’s Cove.  Guides will discuss the environmental significance of the creeks and its wildlife.  All paddlers must bring their own canoe or kayak as well as a life jacket and are welcome to pack a picnic lunch to eat on the trip or on the Museum’s lawn upon return. 

The fee is $5 per person with Museum members free.  Pre-registration is required and can be done by calling (860)767-8269.  For more information on this or other events, go to the Museum’s website at
