On September 15, 2012, Constitution Marsh Audubon Center & Sanctuary is hosting its first ever Paddle Challenge to raise funds for the continued conservation and stewardship of this fragile wetland. Twenty lucky challengers will have an exclusive opportunity to conquer a 19 mile paddle through the Marsh and on the historic Hudson River.
The paddle begins at 6am at the Marsh, continues into the Hudson River to Little Stony Point, Newburgh, Moodna Creek, Storm King Mountain and ends back at Constitution Marsh Audubon Center
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 MarshWren, Louisiana Waterthrush, Spotted Sandpiper, and Virginia Rail.
By donating to the Marsh Paddle Challenge, you will help Audubon sustain the fragile marsh ecosystem and support efforts to provide nature-based community education.
All donations over $150 will be invited to a Post Paddle Wine Reception and a walk to the Marsh boardwalk on September 15, 2012
