This September Audubon’s Constitution Marsh is hosting its Paddle Challenge where twenty lucky challengers will have an exclusive opportunity to conquer the Marsh and historic Hudson River on a 19 mile paddle to raise funds for the continued conservation and stewardship of this fragile wetland.
The Constitution Marsh Audubon Center and Sanctuary is a unique and beautiful 270-acre tidal marsh that has been managed by the Audubon Society as a wildlife sanctuary since 1970. The Marsh is home to important bird species like the Wren, Louisiana Waterthrush, Spotted Sandpiper, Virginia Rail and it gives visitors, whatever their age, the opportunity to closely observe river life and thus gain new insights into the natural world. By donating to the paddle team in the Constitution Marsh’s Paddle Challenge you will help sustain the Marsh’s efforts to maintain and enhance Audubon’s education, conservation and community outreach programs.
The paddle begins at 6am at the Marsh then continues onto the Hudson River traveling from Little Stony Point up to Newburgh, then south to Modena Creek and Storm King Mountain, ending back at the Constitution Marsh Audubon Center.
Any donations over $150 will receive an invitation to the Post Paddle Reception and a private tour of the Marsh on Saturday, September 15, 2012.
Thank you for your support!
