Flying, nesting, feeding – there’s nothing quite like observing birds from a kayak. Don’t miss this unique birding adventure, fun for locals and visitors alike, at the country’s first urban NWR, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.
After a brief demonstration to review basic strokes and techniques for paddling a recreational kayak, L.L.Bean’s outdoor experts will take you on a leisurely paddle to look at birds, plants and wildlife with bird guide Donna Kipphorn. Along the way you’ll learn more about the area, bird identification and behavior, and bird migration while enjoying a different view of the NWR.
