Use your holiday to get outside and on the water! Our first Destination Row of the 2019 season will take us up French Creek into a New York State Department of Environmental Conservation Wildlife Management Area that is the home of a rich variety of birds, mammals, amphibians, reptiles and fish. We will use NYS DEC guides to identify the various species that inhabit the French Creek WMA before rowing back to campus for a picnic lunch in the River Tent.

Step (or float!) back in time on a row around Aunt Jane’s Bay from Boscobel Island to Long Point in one of the Museum’s classically designed and built St. Lawrence Skiffs. The Larson family will host our group once again for a picnic lunch on their porch and tours around the property, which has been in Mrs. Caroline Larson’s family for generations.
Registration Fees: FREE! (Donations to the skiff livery are always welcome)
