Identify Nature : Wetland Plants by Canoe

Part Two : July 19th, 2017

Join Madawaska River Rentals for an exploration by canoe of Conroy Marsh, her shoreline and aquatic plants, identify and share traditional uses for food and medicine, and uses as wildlife fodder amongst the floating water world.

We know people are eager to get their paddle rhythm jive-on, so we plan to paddle, covering a bit of territory, stopping to explore and raft up along the way, peeking in for orchids and pitcher plants. 

Participants will experience the ecologically rich plant life of Conroy Marsh, and see the wildlife that enjoy the food bounty. Expect to see wild rice, cranberries, cattails, wapato, pickerelweed, orchids, uva ursi, Saskatoon, blue, nanny, aronia, and other berries from your canoe perch.

We will plan meet, and outfit at 5:30pm. Following outfitting, we will paddle and explore for approx 3 hours, finishing around sunset.

Guests are asked to bring plant guides, binoculars, weather appropriate clothing, sun/rain protection, bug repellent/bugcoat, water, snacks and their own curious nature. Cost: $25 per person includes canoe rental, all of the necessary gear for safety. Please bring your own water tight flashlight.
