Canoe trip on the Mystic River
- Mystic River Watershed Association Annual Fingerling Fling: August
24th, 6pm- dusk
Join us for a paddling trip along the Mystic River on August 24th from
The Fingerling Fling celebrates the life cycle of the fingerling, one
of the Mystic Rivers smallest inhabitants. These finger-sized young
River Herring journey to Boston Harbor in late summer, maturing in the
harbor waters for several years before returning to the Mystic to
spawn. Join us as we canoe the River in search of these tiny
treasures. In past years we have also been treated to sightings of
Great Blue Herons, Green Herons, Black-Crowned Night Herons, swans,
and other wildlife. Come spend a summer evening exploring the wonders
of the Mystic River!
Canoes are provided, but SPACE IS LIMITED, so please RSVP.
We will meet at the Blessing of the Bay Boathouse, 32 Shore Drive,
Somerville, directions will be provided. RSVP to Dara Olmsted at
781-316-3438 or dara@.... Suggested donation of $5. PLEASE
NOTE: This is a sunshine event, so if it rains, we will have to
cancel. See you on the river!
