In celebration of World Fish Migration Day, Maine Coast Heritage Trust (MCHT) and Downeast Coastal Conservancy (DCC) are co-sponsoring a paddle on the Orange River
Many partners, including Maine Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, Downeast Salmon Federation, Cobscook Shores, Downeast Coastal Conservancy, and MCHT provide protection of the Orange River to ensure high water quality in this important Downeast Watershed.
The paddle event will take place on May 22nd from 9:30 AM – 1:00 PM. Participants should meet at the MCHT Office at 160 US Rt. 1 in Whiting at 9:30 to carpool to the launch site.
· Paddle down Orange Lake: enjoy a short hike along the northern lakeshore in MCHT’s Rocky Lake Preserve.
· Paddle and Portage from Orange Lake into Rocky Lake: explore MCHT’s Rocky Lake Preserve.
· Join us afterward at MCHT’s Orange Lake campsite for a campfire and picnic. Please bring your own snacks and lunch, (smoked alewives will be provided!)
Bring your own boat, paddles, and life jackets if you have them. There is a limited number of boats available free of charge upon request. It will be May in Maine so dress accordingly and be prepared for weather and bugs! Lastly, make sure you wear waterproof footwear or shoes you don’t mind getting wet.
