Annual Full Moon Paddle
The Public is invited to THE ANNUAL EVENING / FULL MOON PADDLE for canoes and kayaks on the Scantic River sponsored by the Scantic River Watershed Association on Saturday AUGUST 17th at the Somers Mill Pond in Somers, CT. The pond is located on School Street in Somers, CT off of route 190 in the Somersville section of Somers.
According to “The Farmers Almanac” the August moon is known as the Sturgeon Moon – since sturgeon a very large fish was most readily caught during the time of the full moon. We will probably not see any sturgeon but we should be able to see native fish and wildlife during the trip.
Registration for the paddle will begin at 6:00 pm. The full moon paddle will start around 7:15 pm as the sun will set at approximately 7:45 pm that night.
This paddle is open to the general public and there is no fee involved. The SRWA is asking all participants to donate a non perishable food item to benefit the various area Food Shelfs. All participants must supply their own canoe or kayak, paddles, PFD’S and flash lights. Glow sticks will be provided while supplies last
The paddle will be a leisurely trip up through the Mill Pond area and into a short section of the Scantic River above the Route 190 Bridge, then back to the dam area at the Mill Pond under the Sturgeon Moon.
