For the past fourteen years the Androscoggin river Source to the Sea canoe trek has succeeded in it’s mission to raise awareness about the Androscoggin River as an important ecological and economic resource and as a result thousands of people have come to the river to join the trek for a day or two and have left with an investment in the river as a special place with meaning.
The 2009 Trek will highlight sections of the 174-mile length of the Androscoggin. The Trek is an event that serves the regional communities and New England well by demonstrating that our waterways are economic, recreational and natural resources that must be appreciated in order to be preserved for future generations. Over the past 14 years, the Source to the Sea Trek has consistently been the summer event that draws the public’s attention to the Androscoggin River.
Participants must bring their own canoe or kayak, life jackets for every person in the boat, and paddles. Rentals are available from local outfitters.
Pre-registration is REQUIRED for Trek participants for logistical and safety reasons. Please call the section leader or contact number for the sections you wish to paddle. Some days may have limited capacity.
