Swallow Paddle

Nature/Outdoors
Swallow Paddle; Connecticut River Museum, 67 Main St., Essex, CT , 06426

This sunset paddle on the CT River will give us a unique opportunity to see one of Natures’ most amazing avian spectacles. Up to 400,000 Tree Swallow perform their nightly aerial ballet, as they collect above the marshes at the mouth of the CT River and swirl overhead in a massive flock that undulates in choreographed waves, until just after sunset when the whole flock descends like a collapsing tornado into the reeds to roost for the night.
Participants do need to bring their own boat. We'll meet at the boat launch between 5 and 5:30 to unload canoes and kayaks. After vessels are unloaded we will car pool to the commuter lot one quarter of a mile away because there are only 6 parking spaces at the boat launch.

Please call 860-767-8269 ex.121 for more information or to register.
