Join a NYS Licensed Guide and Wild Center Naturalist on this morning excursion on the Raquette River. After meeting as a group at the Museum parking lot, we will gear up then walk down to the Raquette River along The Wild Center's trails, looking for wildlife along the way. At the river we will use The Wild Center's canoe fleet for a paddle along the Oxbow. Oxbows are unique, natural formations found in some rivers around the world. We will paddle around the many curves and turns of this special place in search of marsh animals, from birds to the occasional beaver. Getting out on the water early increases your chances of seeing some of the local wildlife, including Great Blue Heron, Chestnut-sided and Yellow Warblers, various waterfowl, American Kestrel, many other birds, beaver, muskrat, and river otters.
