Spend a relaxing afternoon on the Raquette River with a NYS Licensed Guide and Wild Center Naturalist. Meet at Admissions, then head down to the serene banks of the Raquette River, where we’ll go over safety and paddling before we embark on an interpretive trip around the Oxbow, a unique, natural formation found in rivers around the world. Catch a glimpse of native wildlife and learn about the natural history of the Adirondacks. This trip is geared to all paddling skill levels. A ½ mile walk on rolling terrain is required to reach our launch site. Children ages 5 through 15 must have at least 1 parent or guardian present for every 2 children. Museum admission is not included. Register soon as space is limited.
