Enjoy a calm 2-hour paddle and learn some history of the river in Saxonville and current threats from invasive aquatic vegetation. There will be two paddles on Saturday, one at 8:00am and one at 11:00am. Feel free to access a canoe and take a self-guided tour of this 1-mile section of the river. You are likely to spot a great blue heron, a kingfisher, a myriad of ducks and geese with chicks, and turtles sunning themselves, and maybe a bald eagle! There’s also the option of leisurely picking up shoreline debris and observing an invasive water chestnut hand-pulling removal demonstration. Please contact for any questions about the paddle.
