Steeped in local history, the marsh offers an abundance of birds and other wildlife, beautiful vistas, and a chance to paddle and unwind.

Wind and weather may cause the water trip to be canceled, even on a sunny day. If water conditions are not safe, we will simple enjoy nature, walk, and picnic.

To Carpool: We will meet promptly at 7:30 a.m. at the commuter parking lot off Route 8 Exit 39 in Thomaston, across from the Dunkin’ Donuts, to ensure a put-in at 9 a.m. To meet at the put-in at Charles Wheeler Salt Marsh: Be there at 8:30 a.m. Directions to put-in: From Route 1 eastbound in the Devon section of Milford, turn right onto Naugatuck Avenue, then right onto Milford Point Road.

We expect to be there at 8:30 a.m. Bring your kayak or canoe, a life jacket, water, a snack, bug repellent, and wear shoes that can get wet. Also, if you would like to bring a lunch for a picnic after the paddle, we will head to the Audubon Coastal Center at Milford Point.

ConnYak Cedar Lake Practice

Aug 3, 2016, Cedar Lake Boat Launch Bishop Rd., Chester, CT

A casual gathering of paddlers most Wednesdays during the warm months on Cedar Lake in Chester, CT. No formal instruction is offered, but there are often friendly folks willing to help with whatever skills you might be looking to learn or refine. This is a very relaxed environment with much floating about and chatting. People start to show up around 4pm and most will stay on the water until they get tired, cold, hungry or it starts getting dark. Arrive anytime, we're easy to find - usually at the far end of the lake. All are welcome.

Paddling is typically followed by a simple Potluck in the parking lot. Bring a chair and a snack to share. On shorter or colder days, we often go for pizza.

Be sure to check the Connyak Bulletin Board for possible cancellations during the season (http://www.connyak.org/cgi-bin/BBS.pl/)
