Canoeists and kayakers are invited to join other adventurers for an intermediate paddle from Round Pond to Louds Island on Saturday, July 16.

The trip, hosted by Medomak Valley Land Trust, will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Canoeists and kayakers will paddle across Muscongus Bay, a little over a mile, to one of the best and largest examples of a comet tail beach, otherwise known as a tombolo. On the way to Louds Island paddlers will have the opportunity to observe a variety of colonial and shorebird species.

Participants should provide their own canoe or kayak and life preserver, and pack water and a picnic lunch if desired. Because of the distance and open water this is not considered an easy paddle.

The trip will depart from the town landing in Round Pond, which is just after the Muscongus Bay Lobster Co. Limited parking is available at the town landing. A greeter will assist with unloading kayaks and provide information on additional parking.
