SEDGEUNKEDUNK MARSH PADDLE
April 30 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am
Leader: Gordon Russell, fully vaccinated and boosted. Cartop your own canoe or kayak to the Sedgeunkedunk Dam parking lot on the Brewer Lake Road in Orrington, and arrive early enough to unload your boat and gear and be ready to put into the water at 8 a.m. We will look and listen for marsh birds such as Wilson’s snipe, sora, Virginia rail, marsh wren, pied-billed grebe, and American bittern, as well as for great blue heron, bald eagle and osprey. We may get to see a few aquatic mammals, freshwater-breeding duck species, and common loons as well. We’ll paddle down to the Red Bridge on the Brewer Lake Road before turning around and heading back to the put-in point. The pace will be very leisurely, but all participants should be experienced in basic flatwater paddling skills so we can stay together as a group.
Saturday, April 30/Rain Date Sunday, May 1, 8-11 a.m.
