Family Programs

Group Canoe Paddle: 

Our canoe paddles are a great way to spend an afternoon on the water
with family or friends! Bring the whole family or come on your own and
make some new friends.
We will travel along the Saugatuck River in search of
egrets, osprey, ducks,
shorebirds and much more! Canoes and personal
flotation devices (required for all participants) are included! Space is
limited and advanced registration
is strongly recommended.

 

Earthplace encourages people with special needs (who are able to
follow directions and get in/out of a canoe independently) to participate in
this event, and two spots (one canoe) are reserved for such individuals.
Additionally, income-eligible Westport residents are able to participate at

no cost thanks to a scholarship program.
