Fall Kayak Tour – Presented by VINS and L.L. Bean

Oct 1, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm UTC-4

Fall is a beautiful time to get out on the water for a paddle. Join VINS and L.L. Bean for a guided kayak tour on the serene waters of the Connecticut River. Pick up a few paddling pointers from L.L. Bean’s instructors and talk birds and natural history with your VINS guide. Take a quick break to savor some delicious seasonal snacks on Gillman Island and keep an eye out for the bald eagles and other bird life that call this river habitat home. VINS is delighted to be working with L.L. Bean to provide you with an enjoyable afternoon complete with a guided paddle, spectacular scenery, and hopefully, some great wildlife viewing.
