2010 Winooski River Sojourn! Exploring the Flora & Fauna of the Winooski

2010 Winooski River Sojourn! Exploring the Flora & Fauna of the Winooski Montpelier Vermont



posted at 2:00 pm Mon May 3rd, 2010 by (WherezIt_Staff)

The Winooski River Sojourn is a multi-day paddling trip on the Winooski River.

During the trip participants will learn about this great Vermont resource while also raising money to help support the work of the Friends of the Winooski River. This year's Sojourn will feature presentations about the flora and fauna of the Winooski Watershed Basin.

The 2010 Sojourn will begin in Marshfield on Tuesday June 22nd and reach Lake Champlain on Sunday June 27th. Paddlers may sign up for the entire trip, multiple days or just one day. All meals and camping are provided. Paddlers must bring their own camping and paddling gear including a canoe or kayak.

This year we are also adding two afternoon only paddles for families or those who simply can't find time for a full day. This is a rain or shine event. If there are unsafe river conditions, alternative activities including paddling on ponds or reservoirs will be arranged.

Paddling Ability
The Winooski River is not a difficult river to paddle. For the most part, the rapids are short and easily portaged. However, paddlers should have experience on moving water, not just lakes or ponds. Safety will be the number one priority on the Sojourn. Sojourn safety staff will make the final decision as to whether or not someone is capable of paddling a given stretch of river. The majority of the river is quite calm and slow moving. We will cover from 7 to 15 miles per day at a moderate pace. You can visit the website at www.winooskiriver.org/
