Free Evening Paddle to Celebrate Summer Solstice June 20

Essex, CT —   On Wednesday, June 20, Connecticut River Museum and Connecticut River Watershed Council educators will team up and lead a free, evening paddle to celebrate the longest day of the year. All are invited to join the two-hour exploration of North Cove in Essex, a natural embayment to the Connecticut River featuring extensive tidal marshes, historic sites and other points of interest.

The tour will launch at 5:30 pm at the Essex boat ramp at the foot of Main Street next to the Museum. Participants must bring their own canoe or kayak and life vest and are encouraged to bring a river-friendly snack and non-alcoholic beverage. Dogs are not permitted.

The paddle is free but pre-registration is required and space is limited. To register, call 860.767.8269 ext.110 or email crm@ctrivermuseum.org.

The Connecticut River Museum, a private, non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the natural and cultural heritage of the Connecticut River and surrounding valley region, is located at 67 Main Street in Essex.  More information can be found at www.ctrivermuseum.org.
