Canoe & Kayak Around Thatchbed Island and South Cove August 9

Here’s a great opportunity to enjoy one Essex’s most scenic paddles! Join naturalist Phil Miller and kayaking enthusiast Kathy LaBella in touring around Thatchbed Island and venturing to Turtle Creek Cove on Thursday August 9.

Learn about the area’s natural history and experience close-up views of birds and plants and the beauty of Middle and South Coves. Departure is promptly at 5 pm so participants should plan to arrive ahead of time to launch their canoe’s/kayaks. Open to paddlers of all ages, but basic experience in paddling is required.

This is an Essex Great Outdoors Pursuit event. Launch from Essex Town Park on Main Street. Park behind the Post Office at 12 Main Street, Essex. Bad weather cancels.
