Meet Your Greens - Onboard the RiverQuest

Meet Your Greens!

Middlesex County green drinks July 2010

Come celebrate our one-year anniversary aboard the RiverQuest!

July 20, 2010

6:15 pm to 8:30 pm

Boarding at: Eagle Landing State Park, Haddam

Meet Your Greens! is marking its first birthday this summer. And thanks to the generosity of Captain Mark Yuknat and crew, we're invited to party aboard the good ship RiverQuest for an early evening summer cruise on the Connecticut River. Operated by Connecticut River Expeditions, the RiverQuest provides the general public access to the lower Connecticut River and educates passengers on the river's ecology and beauty.

This is a B.Y.O.B. night-please bring drinks and snacks for yourself and, if you can, a little extra to share. Meet Your Greens will supply cups, napkins, etc. And we will be leaving at 6:30 p.m. sharp, so plan to arrive a few minutes early to check in.

SPACE IS LIMITED: we need to take reservations for this night, so if you plan to come, please email Claire Rusowicz, crusowicz@rockfallfoundation.org, to save a seat for yourself and friends. First come, first served-reservations will be accepted up until noon on July 20th. Please check for a confirmation response e-mail to your reservation request.

CANCELLATION NOTE: If for any reason (bad weather, etc.) we need to cancel, Claire will send out an e-mail by 2:00 p.m. on that day. No phone calls, please.

RiverQuest leaves from Eagle Landing State Park in Haddam, CT.

There is no physical address for Eagle Landing State Park, so for a GPS address, please enter 22 Bridge Road, Haddam, CT06438. This is the location of the Goodspeed Station General Store that is located directly across the street from the entrance to Eagle Landing State Park.

DRIVING DIRECTIONS: From Route 9 north or south: Take Exit 7, merging onto Route 82 (exit ramp is 2.8 miles long). At the bottom of the exit, take a left. Take a right at the first light, onto Bridge Road/Route 82. Go about 0.4 mile and take a right just after the railroad tracks, before the East Haddam Swing Bridge into Eagle Landing State Park.
