ALTON/OLD TOWN — Hirundo Wildlife Refuge invites you to this month’s Blue Moon Paddle. Evening is the time when beaver, muskrat, mink and otter become active. You might see lingering shadows on shore or in the water and hear that familiar slap of a beaver’s tail. Bring a snack to enjoy during the sunset, water and a flashlight.

Meet at Hirundo Wildlife Refuge, Gate 3 in the parking lot (35 Hudson Rd., Alton). Reservations and cancellations requested by Sunday July 29, call 207-944-9259 or 207-827-2230. Program is open to all ages. Suggested donations are $4 for adults, school-aged children are free.

Directions from the South

Take the I-95 N and then the ME-43 exit 197 to Old Town/Hudson. Turn left onto Rt. 43 (Hudson Rd). Go west 5.5 miles, past Gate 1 (large red sign) and take a right into the last driveway before the bridge.
