HEBRON — On Tuesday, July 22 the Lakes Region Conservation Trust and the Newfound Lake Region Association will offer a guided paddle on the Cockermouth River and Newfound Lake with Dr. Rick Van de Poll. This paddling excursion will provide participants with the opportunity to view conserved lands in Hebron from the water and to explore dramatic aquatic landscapes.
The trip will begin at Grey Rocks, a 29.38-acre property which was donated to NLRA with a conservation easement donated to LRCT in 2011 by Andy and Linda McLane. This conservation area preserves thousands of feet of shoreline on the Cockermouth River, a significant wildlife habitat, and protects water quality.
Dr. Van de Poll has completed Ecological Assessments for both the Grey Rocks property and the contiguous Charles L. Bean Sanctuary owned by the Town of Hebron and has extensive knowledge of the ecological characteristics of these areas.
Participants will enjoy lunch together at a stopping point along the route. During the trip participants will have a chance to explore marshes and ecological areas of interest by paddle. There will be opportunities for swimming in a few spots along the way for those who are interested. The trip may also continue along a bit of the shoreline of Newfound Lake before returning to the launching point.
