Alewife Run Paddle June 26

Orland -

ORLAND -  Orland River Day festivities at 8:00am, Saturday, June 26 – join the annual Alewife Run from Craig Brook National Fish Hatchery to Orland Village! Cheri Domina of GPMCT and Karen Francouer of Castine Kayak will lead canoers and kayakers from the Alamoosook Lake beach for a leisurely 3.5-mile (less than two hour) paddle down the lovely Narramissic River, arriving in the village in time for the parade and strawberry shortcake. One short portage around a dam is involved. Need a boat? Castine Kayak will rent and deliver a kayak for $20 (call 866-3506); GPMCT will also have a canoe, paddles and PFD’s available. To leave a vehicle in the village, drop off your boat at the hatchery, then drive to the village and catch the shuttle back (courtesy of First Student), leaving from the FL Davis parking lot on Rte. 175 (next to the Post Office) at 7:30 am. Craig Brook National Fish Hatchery is located 1.3 miles off Rte. 1, on Hatchery Road in East Orland. For more info, call Cheri at 469-2008 or e-mail cheri@greatpondtrust.org.
