Twilight Paddle on Lake Gardner

BYOB- bring your own boat - to this Trails & Sails twilight paddle at Lake Gardner!

Come join the Lake Gardener Improvement Association for a twilight paddle on Lake Gardner!  Enjoy the magic of twilight on the water! Bring your kayak, canoe or paddleboard and join us as we leisurely paddle the flatwater of Lake Gardner to enjoy the quiet as dusk turns to dark as we watch for migrating geese to land. The trip will depart the beach at 7:00 PM and will involve a talk about the history of the lake and its environs as we explore the shoreline as we watch the sky gradually change.

Kayak to Choate: Island Tour and Picnic

Take a guided kayak paddle to Choate Island with the Trustees of Reservations!

Circumnavigating an island is one of the great rewards of kayaking. Reaching the summit of a hill that offers a great view is one of the payoffs of a good hike. This adventure in the Crane Wildlife Refuge offers an opportunity to do both of these things in one outing. We’ll paddle around three islands, the largest of which—Choate (formerly Hog) Island—supports myriad birds and mammals including deer, fisher, coyote, and otter. We’ll land there and enjoy a picnic lunch on the lawn of the Choate family homestead.
