27 people enjoyed a canoe trip as part of the Mystic River Watershed Urban Trail Map and Activity Guide. Departing from the Blessing of the Bay boathouse in Somerville, attendees headed upstream, passing swans, mallards, great blue heron and Canadian geese. Along the way features such as water lily, phragmites, and water chestnut were highlighted in addition to learning about the history of this industrial, once tidal river.
Canoes were generously provided by Charles River Canoe and Kayak.
Thanks to all who participated and to our guides Kevin and Nate from Charles River Canoe and Kayak!
