From Northampton to the Boundary Waters
(or at least the boundary with Hatfield)
Take in the beauty of the Connecticut River in a dragon boat and learn about our rich natural and cultural history at the same time. Betsy Powell, Head Coach of Paradise City Dragon Boat, will begin the outing with a paddling lesson, and naturalist Laurie Sanders, Co-Director of Historic Northampton, will teach us about the environmental and human history of the stretch of river between Elwell Island and the Hatfield boundary.
All equipment provided, no prior paddling experience necessary. Suggested donation: $25 for members of Historic Northampton; $35 for non-members.
Participants will receive directions, details on what to wear, etc upon registration. For ages 18+.
This is an active outing. Participants are expected to paddle, and be fit enough to handle themselves in the boat.
