PLEASE NOTE: This event has been cancelled for 8/8/19 due to the weather forecast, including possible thunderstorms. Please stay tuned for a possible reschedule date. Thank you.
Join us for an evening of twilight paddling on the Androscoggin River in downtown Lewiston Auburn!
This paddling event is also a leg of the Androscoggin River Watershed Council’s Source to Sea Trek, which over the course of a month, covers the River from Magalloway to Merrymeeting Bay.
Paddlers will leave Auburn’s Festival Plaza boat launch at 5:30 p.m. for a tour to explore the nearby river, hearing about local history, gazing up at the cities on either side and into the historic canals, and paddling to the confluence with the Little Androscoggin River, before regrouping at Gritty’s for refreshments and conversation.
The event is a great opportunity to learn more about the river and local history while enjoying a laid back paddle. We hope to see you there!
Please bring a canoe, kayak, or stand-up paddle board (SUP) (experienced SUP paddlers only), and a United States Coast Guard approved flotation device (life-jacket).
