Sea Kayak to Woodward Point
Hosted by the Maine Chapter of the AMC
The Maine Chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club is hosting an afternoon paddle to check out Woodward Point on the New Meadows River from a water vantage. 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.
Come learn a bit about how the project to protect this property by the Brunswick Topsham Land Trust and the Maine Coast Heritage Trust came to be and the current status. This is a joint venture to introduce you to this beautiful part of the coast. After viewing the area around Woodward Point from the water, we will make a group decision on how much further to paddle. There is a small Bureau of Parks and Land island we could visit. 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.
Registration is required.
To register, please email Michelle Moody, to register. Include information on your level of paddling experience, type of kayak and length, the emergency gear you carry, and a phone contact.
If you have any questions, contact Michelle at 207-406-5221 (before 9 pm). Correct times and meeting location will be emailed upon registration.
