We’re partnering with Branch Hill Farm for our annual Branch River Paddle and Hike, on May 21st 10am-2pm. Local canoe and kayak enthusiasts will enjoy the opportunity to paddle on the beautiful Branch River in Milton Mills, NH.
Due to its’ overwhelming popularity last year, participants will once again partake in a hike along the lovely trails on Branch Hill Farm passing through forests and fields back to the launch site while the kayaks/canoes will be trucked back from the upper end of Milton Three Ponds. The walk back is approximately 1 hour. Lunch will be offered to all the participants walking along the trail to either sit and enjoy or take with them for later.
This year’s guest speaker will be Nels Liljedahl, Outreach Coordinator for the National Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). Nels will be speaking on what makes up a “watershed” and how certain activities on the upper reaches can impact the drinking water below.
Paddlers will need to bring their own kayaks or canoes and wear US Coast Guard approved personal flotation devices. A $15
per person donation is suggested. There is no rain date and pets are not permitted. Please register online here!
