Looking for something to do on Saturday afternoon? Come out to the Jonah Center River Paddle launching at 2:30 pm from Harbor Park Middletown. Bill Yule, Naturalist at the Connecticut River Museum in Essex, will be our educator on this paddle. We will stop for commentary and questions at Wilcox Island, the confluence of the Mattabesset and Coginchaug Rivers, the open water of the Boggy Meadows, the proposed site of Middletown’s kayak launch, and at a sandy beach on the Coginchaug. Bill spent many hours paddling and exploring this area as a child, so he has observed its character and changes over a number of decades.

Paddlers need to provide their own boats, life jackets, paddles, drinking water, and snacks. Advance registration is not necessary, and there is no charge for the event. You may call 860-398-3771 for more information or in case of possible cancellation due to weather.

If you need a boat, let the NEAT office know. Call at (860) 346-4845.

From what I hear, it's ''SUPER FUN."

Thank you, Sonia. Other boats or places in canoes might be available for those who don't have access to canoes or kayaks. Email me from the Jonah Center website if you need a place in a canoe or to borrow a kayak.
