Paddle the Border: Connecticut River Woodsville/Haverill
The Paddle The Border (PTB) event is in its 16th year. PTB was started as a way for community organizations from Vermont and New Hampshire to work together to showcase our shared asset, the Connecticut River. The event is sponsored by The Newbury Conservation Commission-NCC, Haverhill Recreation Commission-HRC, and Lower Cohase Chamber of Commerce, with support from Woodsville/Wells River Rotary Club.
The Paddle is held twice a year, weather permitting-no rain dates are planned.
The Spring Paddle 2019 is May 19. The Spring Paddle goes from Woodsville Community Field in Woodsville, to the Bedell Bridge State Park Boat Launch off Route 10, Haverhill Corner, NH.
There is a shuttle service from the take out, to the launch sight. This Shuttle Service has been providing by Butler Bus Company (we thank them). The Shuttle Service is available from 10am to 11am. This gives us a suggested launch time of 10:30 to 11:30am. The approximate paddle time for the spring and fall paddle is 3-1/2 to 4 hours.
At the end of the paddle, displays are set up by various local organizations, offering information about the Connecticut River, The Connecticut River Valley and events happening in the Upper Connecticut River Valley.
