Moose Lake Paddle with Naturalist John Bates @ Moose Lake

Moose Lake, situated within the Moose Lake State Natural Area (4,293 acres!), is a large, 270-acre undeveloped lake in a wilderness setting harboring a great diversity of aquatic plants. Most of the shoreline is covered by a dense thicket of alder and sweet gale, but the upland forest surrounding the lake harbors pockets of old-growth hemlock, giving this site a magnificent virgin appearance. Breeding birds include bald eagle, common loon, hooded merganser, and blue-winged teal. We will also paddle into 13-acre Little Moose Lake via Moose Creek.

Meet at NLDC at 8:30 AM or at the Moose Lake landing at 9:00 AM (directions will be sent to registered participants). This paddle is co-sponsored by ICORE. Register by July 17. Canoes/PFDs provided. $40. Friday, 8:30 AM – 12:00 PM. Please read our program registration and cancellation policy here.
