Guided Paddle of the Great Swamp **Postponed**

August 26, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am

**Postponed until further notice due to low water levels in the Great Swamp**


In appreciation of their support, members are invited to join Great Hollow staff for a very special guided tour of The Great Swamp in neighboring Patterson, NY on Aug. 26th. The Great Swamp is a regionally significant wetland that is home to a wide diversity of plant and animal life, including threatened and endangered species. During our paddle, we are likely to see herons, kingfishers, painted turtles, beautiful dragonflies and perhaps a beaver or otter, among other wildlife. Check out this fantastic video produced by the Friends of the Great Swamp and narrated by James Earl Jones to learn more about this special place. The paddle will be fairly easy and last approximately 2 hours round-trip. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own canoe or kayak if they have one; otherwise canoes can be provided upon request. Please email John Foley to register or request additional information. If you are not currently a member of Great Hollow and are interested in becoming one, please click here.
