Tree Swallow River Cruise

September 28

Come join us for a special cruise to witness the amazing aerial acrobatics of hundreds of thousands of tree swallows as they prepare for their evening repose in the reeds along the banks of the Connecticut River. Our group will meet at the Connecticut River Expedition in Haddam, CT to board the Adventure and embark on a 3.5 hour evening cruise. A naturalist will be on board to teach us about the swallow phenomenon and point out other wildlife we may encounter. We may even spot a Bald Eagle along the way!

Adventure is the new addition to Connecticut River Expeditions. It is a classic riverboat that offers an enclosed seating area as well as many open deck vantage points. Be sure to bring your binoculars and cameras. You are welcome to pack a picnic basket and bring your favorite snacks and beverages as well.

Advanced registration is required. Call Central Reservations at 860.572.5331 to register by Tuesday, September 26.
