Upper New Meadows to Woodward Point Paddle
Launching at 1:00 from Brunswick’s Sawyer Park, we will paddle down the New Meadows (a tidal estuary, not actually a river) for about an hour, passing Thomas Point Beach and oyster aquaculture sites to Woodward Point. There we will go ashore a privately owned property for a provided snack and chance to learn about the effort currently under way by Maine Coast Heritage Trust and Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust to conserve this beautiful coastal farm. Woodward Point is one of the largest, undeveloped and unprotected coastal properties left to conserve in York and Cumberland counties. There may be a chance to tag Indian Point or Merritt Island for those working on MITA’s 30in30 challenge before returning with the tide to the ramp at Sawyer Park by 5:30. This is a beginner to intermediate 5NM paddle. Sea kayaks with spray skirts and PFD are required. Boat rentals, with delivery, are available from SeaSpray Kayak in Brunswick. -alicia Heyburn Please contact me withy any questions [masked]
