The Essex Land Trust will host a kayak and canoe trip on North Cove and Falls River in Essex, CT, on August 6. A naturalist will be present to discuss the area’s abundant wildlife and revisit the history of the waterway where many of Essex’s colonial ships were built.

Paddlers should bring their own watercraft and arrive at 4:30 p.m. to register at the Bushnell Street public boat launch.

North Cove is a 230-acre body of tidal water between the Falls River and the Connecticut River. The Cove was noted for shipbuilding, and the nearby Williams’ yard turned out sloops and schooners for the commercial trade in the 19th century.
