Hirundo Wildlife Refuge invites you to a Moon Light Paddle along Pushaw Stream. 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, water and a flashlight.

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