About The Event

Join SRLT in an exploration of a beautiful section of the mainstem Sebasticook River in Pittsfield, followed by gathering at Outland Farm Brewery located downtown at 113 North Lancey St. where you can buy and enjoy a locally sourced farm-to-table meal and/or drink. We will put in at the boat launch at Peltoma Bridge in Pittsfield and paddle downriver toward Burnham to the  Haseltine Landing ( just upriver from the Elweir Bridge). We will take a break there (carry in, carry out policy) then return upriver; it's  approximately 5 miles round trip.  We may make a few detours to visit the seaplane canal and Farnham Brook on the way, all the while keeping an eye out for birds and signs of other wildlife. Led by Pittsfield resident Bill Cunningham and SRLT Executive Director Cheryl Daigle. Participants should have a basic knowledge of steering their watercraft in currents and be physically fit enough to feel comfortable paddling for approximately 3 hours. No bathrooms along the way, just the woods. Participants need to provide their own watercraft, paddles, and life preservers. Bring water, adequate clothing and a snack.
