Trails & Sails Open Space Kayak & Walk Grand Success
Open Space Program Trails and Sails Event a Tremendous Success
The Open Space Program would like to extend our appreciation to everyone who participated in the Ipswich Estuary Kayak and Open Space Walk on Friday September 26th. We enjoyed a beautiful day kayaking and walking on three of the Town’s premier open space properties within the estuary, and it was a tremendous success! We began the glorious sunny fall day launching our kayaks from the Ipswich Town Wharf, and kayaked first to Nichols Field, then on to the Clark Pond Overlook on Great Neck Conservation Area, and finally to Strawberry Hill. The event was part of the county-wide TRAILS & SAILS initiative coordinated by the Essex National Heritage Commission to raise awareness of Essex County’s unique cultural and natural treasures.
