Exploring the Seekonk River

Sunday, November 5, was the last RiverRide of the season.  Three trips up the Seekonk River aboard a Save the Bay boat left from the Narragansett Boat Club dock and headed north to Pawtucket before returning.  Along the way, people saw loads of birds, including herring gulls, black-backed gulls, cormorants, great blue herons, bufflehead ducks, assorted hawks, and a kingfisher.   One trip spotted a pair of deer grazing along the shore!

The weather was warm, the wind was low, and the guides were knowledgeable: perfect conditions to be on the water and learn some of the mysteries of this wonderful body of water in our backyard. As fall approaches next year, keep your eye on the BPC calendar of events so you don’t miss a chance to take this trip again–or for the first time!
