Sunset on the Niagara River (POSTPONED)

New date TBD

5:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Lewiston Public Boat Launch

Cost: $100 (includes kayak rental, paddle, and life jacket).

Join us for a wonderful event beginning at 5:30 PM in Lewiston, NY at the public boat launch. Get your life jacket and kayak (provided) and join Libby Broderick, a NYS licensed outdoor guide, for a tour down river to the Stella Niagara Nature Preserve.

 

Niagara Outfitters is proud to join the Western New York Land Conservancy for this fundraiser, as well as to raise awareness for our beautiful Stella Niagara! We will utilize the new kayak landing and take a special tour of the Stella Niagara Nature Preserve. We will learn about the history of the preserve and see the efforts the Land Conservancy is making to return the Stella Meadow to its original natural beauty. Don't miss this wonderful opportunity for a tour INSIDE the Little Chapel. Learn about the miracles that have taken place there and see the amazing historic artwork by acclaimed artist Joseph Slawinski.

 

After our walk through the meadow, we will head back to the water to launch our kayaks and continue on to Fort Niagara State Park in Youngstown NY, home of the most spectacular sunsets! We can watch the sunset (from the kayak, or on land) and bask in the glory of a beautiful evening! Then we can hop on the Discover Niagara Shuttle to bring us back to the Lewiston waterfront.

 

Cost: $100 (includes kayak rental, paddle, and life jacket). Please note that paddling up river requires a little effort, so if you are unsure, please call us to discuss other options to return you to your car in Lewiston.
