Kayaking the River, oh yes.

East Bay article, part of the Shorelines newspaper group… gets the word out… I myself, use an old school rowboat…


The Trustees of Reservations and the Westport Land Conservation Trust (WLCT) are offering a guided kayak trip on the Westport River on Saturday, Aug. 16 between 9 a.m. and noon.

From Hix Bridge to East Beach, the trip will explore the lower East Branch including a stop at The Let Conservation Area and a water view of Rams Head Island and other conservation land that is only accessible from the water. You’ll see firsthand why protecting exceptional properties along this scenic river is a major conservation priority.

Bring water, sun block and water shoes. Kayaks, paddles and lifejackets are provided. $30 for Trustees’ and WLCT members/ $40 for nonmembers. Pre-registration and pre-payment is required. Meet at the Westport Town Farm, 830 Drift Road, Westport. To register online see “Things to Do” at www.thetrustees.org. For more information call 508 636-4693 ext. 103.
