Every September near the mouth of the Connecticut River, one of the most spectacular shows in the avian world takes place. Hundreds of thousands of Tree Swallows gather right at sunset to roost in the reeds, preparing for the southbound journey in migration. The best way to see it is from a boat on the river, where you’ll be surrounded by swallows flying over the water. We’ll launch a kayak or canoe and paddle to the roosting site. Each participant must provide their own kayak or canoe and PFD.  Participants are also encouraged to bring a headlamp or light for their canoe/kayak.  Limited to 10 participants. Participants must be ages 18 and up. $25 for members/$35 for non-members
