Sudbury Valley Trustees sponsors fall foliage paddle Oct. 6

Hudson/Stow – The Sudbury Valley Trustees are sponsoring an Assabet River Fall Foliage Paddle Saturday, Oct. 6, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Fall is a wonderful time of year to paddle through a beautiful, relatively untraveled section of the Assabet River, through forests and rolling farmlands. Meet at the Cox Street Bridge in Hudson, then paddle round-trip to the Gleasondale Dam in Stow, just upstream of the Stow village of Gleasondale, for a total of 3.6 miles. As the river crosses the town border into Stow, it winds around Orchard Hill, a treeless drumlin creating a striking meadow landscape. Bring your binoculars, as the birdlife is plentiful along this quiet stretch of the river.

Registration is required, and cost is free for SVT members or $10 for non-members. For additional information and registration, visit www.svtweb.org or call 978-443-5588.

Sudbury Valley Trustees is a regional land trust that conserves land and protects wildlife habitat in the Concord, Assabet, and Sudbury river basin for the benefit of present and future generations.
