Paddling the Watershed

Paddling the Watershed

Have you ever explored the Esopus Creek by paddle? Join us to observe the wildlife, vegetation and water quality while learning more about our watershed. The headwaters of the Sawkill Stream in Woodstock begin in Echo Lake and flow into the Esopus in Saugerties. During the paddle we will disembark at the Esopus Bend Nature Preserve to take a short walk through the preserve. For those who are not boat owners, kayaks, lifejackets, and paddles are available to rent from Gail Porter at I Paddle New York, 61 South Partition St., Saugerties. Please call ahead to reserve a kayak and/or equipment at (845) 532-7797. Rentals will be delivered to the Saugerties Village Beach, where we will be launching from. We recommend wearing clothes that youthat you don’t mind getting wet, and bringing appropriate footwear for a short hike of medium grade terrain. Sunscreen, bug spray and water is also recommended. This event is limited to 15 people. Please RSVP to Kate Berdan at kateb.wlc@gmail.com.
