The Jonah Center river paddle previously scheduled for Sat. Sept. 3, at 5 p.m. is cancelled because of record flood levels, the dirty condition of the water, and the strong currents.
We will try to find another date when high tide, the availability of the launch site at Harbor Park, and perhaps a rising moon coincide for a fall paddle.
Our new mission in the Floating Meadows is to search the area for the presence of the invasive waterchestnut that threatens tidal inlets along the Connecticut River and to document and remove these plants where they are present.
The Jonah Center’s next program meeting is Caring for Your Trees and Shrubs, with arborist Jane Harris, on Tuesday, Sept. 13, at 7 p.m. at First Church of Christ, Congregational, 190 Court Street.
