Source to the Sea Trek begins July 6
REGION- With the Clean Water Act celebrating it’s 40th anniversary this year, it’s only fitting to bring your attention to the paddling event that will celebrate the inspiration for the legislation, the Androscoggin River. Beginning in New Hampshire on Thursday, the Source to the Sea Trek will commence with an evening paddle at Umbagog Lake.
The 2012, 18-day paddle from New Hamshire to Brunswick is sure to please your outdoor adventurer’s heart. From the wilderness of the 13-mile woods section in Errol, NH, a few rips along the way to Bethel and the more calm waters between Rumford and Canton, there is something for everyone to experience. Not to mention the education of the river you’ll receive along the way from various experts during a scheduled break for lunch or a light snack.
Jessie Seymour of the Androscoggin River Watershed Council will be your guide to some of the most amazing sights along the way.
Bring your family and friends out for a relaxing evening paddle or bring those more ambitious ones along for a day-long nine or 10-miler. And, don’t be shy, sign up for as many paddles as you like, the more the merrier.
The trek is open to the public and free of charge, but a suggested voluntary donation of $10 per person per day to cover the organizing costs is greatly appreciated. Donations can be made in advance when registering or the day of the paddle you attend.
ARWC will arrange shuttles and group leaders, as well as educational opportunities during select paddles.
