Monday September 16, 2019 6:30pm
Dr. Ken Thomas, Professor of Biology at Northern Essex Community College, will be here to talk about his “trip of a lifetime” – Paddling the Florida Everglades, a 100 mile journey. He will discuss the trip from its planning and preparation stages to the actual trip itself. Hear about the pain of fire ant and no-see-um attacks, the beauty of paddling under a full moon, the frustration of running aground at super low tides, and the challenge of paddling during small craft advisories.
