Name: Summer Solstice Paddle
Date: June 21, 2019
Time: 6:30 PM - 8:45 PM EDT
Event Description:
At the summer solstice, poet Mary Oliver asked, "... what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?" Perhaps we can begin by celebrating the birth of summer on a paddle through the sunset? Awed by the great power of the sun, civilizations have for centuries celebrated the first day of summer, known as Midsummer or the Summer Solstice. During this evening paddle, we'll explore some of the celebrations from around the world as well as the rich history and natural history of Barton Cove. Ancient waterfalls, historic log drives, dinosaur footprints and nesting bald eagles are unique to this peninsula, cove and "narrows" on the Connecticut River. This program is appropriate for both beginning and experienced paddlers. Tandem kayaks available. Please bring a snack or picnic supper, water and a flashlight.
