Arrive early enough to have your boat and yourself ready to launch aat 5:15. We will paddle up stream into  Slater Park and also paddle the perimater of the resevoir.There are always alot of swans and ducks.  There are scenic marsh areas as well. Depending on the water level we may be able to visit the "other side" of the resevoir by passing under Arcade Ave in Seekonk. At any rate it will be a hot night and good to be on the water. You must have a PFD w/ you and bring water and bug spray, sunscreen. A headlamp or flash light is a great idea as well.

There are no rentals, you must have your own boat.

The Wolf School is located at 215 Ferris Ave. pull in behind the school there are signs for Kimberly rock sports fields. stay to the right and go all the way back to end of the lot where the bike path begins. If there is a game going on we will unload and then move cars if necessary.

I will be going over there tomorrow to check for blow downs in the canal.Last time I was there there were a few. Hopefully we will be able to paddle all the way up to Pawtucket Country Club.

    Very nice night on the water. At one point we paddled into a group of 40 swans. They took flight all at once, very cool to see and hear.

    I forgot to mention that is it not a bad idea to bring a head lamp or flash light just in case.
