One of the best ways to see and explore Sunkhaze Meadows National Wildlife Refuge is by paddling up Sunkhaze Stream. D’Auria, a biologist with Maine Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife, will take participants to the heart of the refuge in search of secretive marsh birds, playful otters, and elusive moose. The out-and-back paddle is about 6 miles and should take 3-4 hours. Bring your own kayak or canoe, paddles, PFD, sunscreen, bug juice, water, and snacks.

Please note: the group will meet in Milford then caravan to the site in order to access through a gated area. Please be sure to register (below) in order to receive meeting location/time.

Sponsored by the US Fish and Wildlife Service/Sunkhaze National Wildlife Refuge.
