Kayak Tour Along the Riverside of the Peconic River (BYO Kayak): Adults/Children 10+
Tour Leader: Melanie Meade, South Fork Natural History Museum (SOFO) Education & Outreach Coordinator
The Peconic River winds its way for over 15 miles through the heart of Eastern Suffolk County. The middle section of the river’s long course is a hidden gem for wildlife viewing. Osprey snatch fish from the wider stretches of smooth water. Green herons lurk on low hanging branches, searching for fish. Snapping turtles poke their broad heads up, wary of the sharp-eyed kayaker. An easy, quiet water paddle, the Peconic River is truly an adventure in our own backyard. Along with your kayak, please bring water shoes, water and a snack, binoculars and cameras if you desire.
