Paddles and Pumpkins October 6th

What could be more beautiful than a lovely canoe or kayak ride on Crystal Lake on a crisp autumn day? Come join the board of the Crystal Lake Conservancy and the Newton Parks and Recreation Department for a Sunday afternoon of FREE Canoeing/kayaking on Crystal Lake.

Participants will sign up for a free half hour of boating between 2:00 and 4:00 pm to enjoy the pleasures of our beautiful lake. Life jackets and waivers will be provided and required and a lifeguard will be on duty. Enjoy the game of catching strung up donuts, fresh cider or decorate your own free pumpkin while waiting!!

After boating, stay and learn about Crystal Lake Conservancy’s water testing results for 2013, see the newly launched watershed signs, and hear about the City of Newton’s installment of storm drain filters that aim to decrease the nutrient content into the lake and reduce the incidence of algae blooms. Become a more informed watershed resident and a steward of Crystal Lake!!
