Ipswich River Watershed Association
The Ipswich River Watershed Association’s headquarters at Riverbend is a great place to paddle and explore the river! This event is a beginner, family friendly paddle on pond-like conditions open to all ages and abilities. Our route will depend on water levels but plan on at least an hour of paddling.
RESERVATIONS REQUIRED. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 978-412-8200. We have a limited number of our own kayaks and canoes for use (please reserve ahead of time). Please let us know if you need a boat or if you prefer to bring your own.
