River Paddle

Saturday, June 28, at 1 p.m.
Starting at Harbor Park

This year, our paddle will include a "crowd performance art" event using canoes and kayaks on the water to create a stunning visual effect when photographed from the Arrigoni Bridge. (Imagine the picture shown here, but with 50 canoes and kayaks instead of 2.)

We are looking for paddlers of all ages and skill level to participate. This will be an easy paddle from Harbor Park to the southern tip of Wilcox Island, where the performance art will take place. Then we will circle Wilcox Island and re-establish a tight formation to enhance the visual effect as we paddle back downstream to the Harbor Park boathouse.

If you can help, call 860-398-3771 or click here to send us a message.



Construction of the kayak and canoe launch will be completed this summer. Engineering for the multi-use trail in Middletown (from corner of Randolph and Long Hill Rds to Wesleyan campus) will begin soon.

Our campaign to bring the Air Line Trail to Portland is getting underway.
