Donate $25 and Island Hop via Kayak with Greenwich Land Trust!

Join The Greenwich Land Trust for an outdoor adventure!

Come explore the beautiful scenery and wildlife of Greenwich’s off-shore gems – Shell and Calf Islands.

Kayakers will paddle from Byram Beach to Shell Island, a 5 acre property owned by the GLT and can also enjoy guided tours of neighboring Calf Island hosted by the Calf Island Conservancy. 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.

Be sure to pack a picnic and if you have a kayak, bring it along! Information on renting 1 and 2 person kayaks will be provided once an RSVP to the event is received. Suggested donations for the event are $25 per family.

    A couple of questions.

    1) I see that there is a lack of participants. Is this still happening?

    2) How far is the kayak-put in from where we'll be parking?

    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 the day 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!

    I was telling a buddy of mine about this. He is not a member and has no plans to become one. Can he still join this event? (If he donates, brings his own kayak, etc)
