115th Annual ECOC Birding / Canoe Trip Report from Dave Brewster

Saturday, May 22, morning (start time around 7am) – Note: Advance registration is required
Ipswich River Canoe Trip and Bird Survey

Event Coordinator: Dave Brewster

Participate in the 115th Annual ECOC birding trip down the Ipswich River! Arguably the oldest uninterrupted bird-count in the world, this event is timed to get the best views of birds before full leaf-out, but late enough in the season to get better weather for paddling. Contact Dave for the exact start time and other details.

Update: Unfortunately, because of the ongoing pandemic, we are not able to provide boats and equipment for the trip this year. We are also not able to place you in other people’s boats. Each participant will be responsible for providing their own water craft and necessary equipment (including PFDs).

Directions to the Peabody Essex Museum

PEM Connect Building is at 135 Essex Street, next door to PEM’s main entrance (at the corner of Essex and Liberty St. in Salem, MA). Morse Auditorium is in PEM’s main building. Note: if severe weather is forecast, call 978-745-1876 to confirm event.
