Sea kayak to Woodward Point, New Meadows River

  • July 21, 2019
    2:00 am - 4:00 am

Come join us for an afternoon paddle on July 21 to check out the newly protected Woodward Point on the New Meadows River from the water. This will be a leisurely paddle down the river (working a little against the tide) as we watch for ospreys and eagles and their nests along the shore. You’ll get to learn a bit about how this property came to be protected by the Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust and Maine Coast Heritage Trust as they work to ready the property for the public and update us on the latest news for this project. This is a joint venture to introduce you to this beautiful part of the coast. After viewing the area around Woodward Point, we will make a group decision on how much further to paddle. We will then paddle back to the launch with the incoming tide. The New Meadows River is home to lobster boats and pleasure crafts. Please be mindful of boat traffic. Sea kayaks with at least one waterproof compartment required. PFDs must be worn at all times.
If you require a kayak, please note that in your registration with Michelle Moody, as there is an outfitter from whom you may rent kayaks.
