Don’t Worry, Come Paddle
August 16, 2020
10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Let go of your worries during an easy paddle with Tug Hill Tomorrow Land Trust (THTLT) on Sunday, August 16th from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. as we explore St. Mary’s Pond in the Happy Valley Wildlife Management Area, Oswego County. THTLT board member and skilled naturalist Bob McNamara will be our trip leader. We will be out on the pond rain or shine, barring any severe weather threats. We may explore additional nearby ponds, should time and interest allow.
Paddlers will meet at the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) kiosk on Churchill Road, off County Route 26 on the southern boundary of Happy Valley WMA (Google coordinates: 43 deg 2’ 04.0”N 76 deg 02’ 02.3’W). Take the Parish exit off of I81, and follow County Route 26 east. Turn north onto Churchill Road (opposite Crim Road).
Bring your kayak or canoe, life vest (PFD), lunch/snacks, water, sunscreen, and a facemask for times when distancing is not feasible. Life vests are required for all boaters. Participants will need to sign a standard questionnaire regarding COVID potential symptoms and exposures before we embark.
