Kayak Trip to Shell Island

Join the Greenwich Land Trust for this not-to-be missed exploratory excursion to the beautiful Shell Island and a guided tour of neighboring Calf Island, hosted by the Calf Island Conservancy.(CIC) Kayakers will paddle from Byram Beach to Shell Island, a 5 acre property owned by the GLT. Naturalists will be available on both islands to discuss the numerous inhabitants of Long Island Sound. This is a great opportunity to learn from experts about the ecology and history of these coastal habitats and spot the many plants and animals that call these islands home.

Suggested donation for the event is $25 per family. Bring your own picnic lunch. Information about renting 1 and 2-person kayaks will be provided when an RSVP is received. Kayak rental fees are not included in suggested donation amount.

    Hi all,

    Hope to see you kayaking on Saturday! For anyone who needs to rent a kayak- Greenwich Community Sailing is coordinating rentals for the trip to Shell and Calf Island.

    They will be charging a flat rate of $40 for both single and double kayaks.

    Please call Tess Brown, Office Manager at (203)[masked] by this Wednesday, July 16 if you are planning on renting. They will need to know the number and type of kayak you will be renting (either double or single), email address, phone number, and credit card number to hold the reservation and will deliver the kayaks to Byram Beach on Saturday morning.

    Let me know if you have any questions!
