Bioluminescent Paddle :: Tuesday, August 18, 2015 :: 7:30 to 9:30 pm

WPWA and the US Fish and Wildlife National Wildlife Refuge System are partnering to provide this fascinating paddle on a salt pond in Charlestown, RI. In the summer bioluminescent comb jellyfish make their way into coastal waters as the temperature warms up. On a dark, warm summer night they can often be found near the surface of the water where they are easily disturbed. Paddlers will be delighted by the glow emitted by these delightful creatures with every stroke of their paddle. Because of the popularity of this event we will offer it on 4 different nights this year - Aug 18, 19, 20, & 21. Please sign up for the night you want. Space is limited.

Dress for the weather. We will be paddling in the dark so headlamps or flashlights are a good idea. Bring your own boat or use one of WPWA's.

WPWA Member Price: $10.00/person      Non-Member Price: $20.00/person

Kayaks: A limited number of single person 9 foot kayaks are available for this event at a price of $20 for WPWA members or $25 for non-members. Boats may be reserved when you register for the event.
