Grab your kayak or canoe and join GSWA as we paddle upstream from the Fisherman’s Parking Lot at
the Lord Stirling Environmental Education Center. We’ll traverse beaver dams and explore the
river, with Somerset County Park land on one side, and the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge on
the other. Our eyes will be peeled for turtles, snakes, migratory birds, and other creatures as we
paddle through the peaceful waters.
Please note that there are two times for this event, and each time is limited to eight boats (not
individuals).9:00 AM – 11:00 AM OR 11:30 AM – 1:30 PM.
You must bring your own boat, paddles, and personal flotation device (PFD). You will not be able
to join the guided paddle without a PFD, which will be inspected before we leave. You should be
dressed to get wet (including your shoes) and bring your own water. You will be asked to sign a
waiver prior to participation. Registration required. Register online at GreatSwamp.org or by
