Idlewild Birding by Canoe Adventure

Saturday, August 2, 2014

11:00 a.m.

Few experiences compare with being on the open water in New York City.  Our trained Urban Park Rangers will lead you on canoe adventures that range from the gentle waters of protected lakes to the challenging open waters of rivers and bays.  Participation in a mandatory safety review led by a trained Ranger is required. Enjoy a peaceful paddle in the wetlands of Jamaica Bay and view the incredible birds in this habitat.  

For ages 8 years old and up.  This is an intermediate canoing trip.

Participants are chosen by lottery.  To enter your name in the lottery, visit www.nyc.gov/parks/rangers/register on Wednesday, July 23rd.
