Opening Day 2016 Saturday May 14th!

This Saturday May 14th (noon – 4pm) we’re ditching the dry suits for a sunny and beautiful 2016 opening day!

Join us for a public paddle with beautiful views, nosh on stuff from the grill, and tie knots by the campfire. Visit the Ed Shed, check out the boat we’re building, and stick your hands in some dirt. Enjoy the music of our returning guest and troubadour Morgan O’Kane, who will drop in by boat and kick off his Sailing the Hudson Tour.
