The Whitewater Rafting Program is designed to give you the opportunity to have fun with a challenging outdoor experience.  The rafts are incredibly stable, yet responsive to coordinated teamwork; working well with four to five other team members is an integral part of a successful whitewater experience. The rafting experience uses standard self-bailing rafts on the warm, clean waters of the upper Connecticut River at Hartland Rapids.  The Wilder Dam controls water releases that produce class 1, 2 and 3 rapids during the summer.  Hartland offers a number of practice areas and a relatively short run that can be repeated during the session.  Participants must be over 10 years of age.
• What to Wear:  Please wear a short or long-sleeve shirt, long pants, and old sneakers.  You will get wet, so don’t wear your best clothes or running shoes for rafting. Participants must wear footwear which will be secured (no flip-flops) to your feet. No barefeet allowed.  Note:  The river can be cool and buggie.
• What to Bring:  Windbreaker/Sweatshirt, Towel & a change of clothes for after rafting, (changing facilities are primitive), Sunglasses (optional; all eyewear should have a strap), bug repellent, snacks & water, and a day pack to carry all of this.  You will want your hands free.
• Everyone will be required to wear a life vest and a helmet.  No exceptions.  Vests & helmets will be provided. Youngsters under adult size small must bring their own lifejacket and helmet in order to participate.  You might want a baseball cap under the helmet to use the visor as a sun shield.

Explore the habits and habitats of our indigenous woodland animals.  Through careful observation of obvious and subtle field signs, we will investigate how various species (emphasis on our larger northern mammals) interact with the landscape.  This outing will be about physical sensing, awareness of forest inhabitants, recognizing dynamics and disturbances, and becoming one and the same with nature.  Recognizing and reading remote environs allow you to become part of the forest community.  In so doing, you will come to know the forest just as you know your home and yourself.
Instructor:  Alcott Smith, D.V.M. has been a practicing veterinarian for thirty-five years.  From childhood curiosity, he has maintained a lifelong commitment and unwavering allegiance to the indigenous fauna of Northern New England.  Beyond his active role in the perpetuity of endangered species, he revels in sharing his passion with others and excels in his ability to bring to life the relationship between our wild fauna and its habitat.
Canoes/Kayaks are available from the Ledyard Canoe Club to rent on a hourly basis.  Reservations are requested.
