Kayak trip to Whalebone Cove

Date: Sun August 11, 2013
Time: 3:30-5:30 p.m.
Place: Hadlyme Ferry Parking Area
Contact Email: rsvp@lymelandtrust.org
Presenter: Susan Ballek
!!! seems it only displays well the 2nd time? ugh.

Join us Sunday, August 11 at 3:30 p.m. at the Hadlyme Ferry parking lot. Pre-registration required. Email rsvp@lymelandtrust.org or call
860-434-4639. Event is limited to 15 boats.

Located on the east side of the CT River, Whalebone Cove offers a unique opportunity to see a variety of marsh species, from warblers and heron to wild rice and spatterdock, a flowering plant in the water lily family. We’ll take advantage of high tide to explore a side channel of the cove, with a chance to see painted turtles, swamp sparrows, and maybe a muskrat. At the head of the Cove is the mouth of Roaring Brook,and views of the Lyme Land Conservation Trust’s Banningwood Preserve can also be seen on the paddle. Whalebone Cove is a magical place to visit throughout the warmer months, and you may want to return in the fall when numerous migrating waterfowl are passing through.

Please contact us if you would like to participate and do not have a kayak, as several are available to borrow.
