Heard Event

Wetland Canoe Trails

Event Date: April 9, 2022
Start Time: 2:30 pm
End Time: 5:30 pm

Due to the overwhelming response to our other pre-scheduled 3-Hour Wetland Canoe Trails this spring (sold out), we have added an additional date on April 9! Join us from 2:30-5:30 p.m. This program is available by pre-registration only.

Experience the amazing diversity in wetland vegetation and wildlife while learning about the history and basics of wetland ecology. After a safety and canoeing introduction, spend about 40 minutes on a guided trail around the Heard wetlands, followed by free paddle time to explore on your own.

No experience is necessary for any of the paddle programs. All participants will be given an introduction to canoeing that includes basic strokes, boat safety, and flatwater maneuvers.

A limited number of custom canoe programs are also available only by reservation and as water levels permit (often, the water levels are only suitable from February through May) for groups of 12 or more. Request a Custom Program or for more information, email ropes@heardmuseum.org.
