Neponset River Paddle Events

BYOB (bring your own boat) and join us for a fun time on the river!

Join NepRWA staff naturalists on an exploration of the Neponset River and learn about the wildlife and history of the area.


  • Sat., August 15 from 9 am-11 am (arrive at 8:30 to unload canoes)

Note: as of July 30, this event is FULL. You can still register to be on a waitlist. If we have enough interest, we may add another paddle from this area.

    • Explore the Wild “Rice” Islands and the beautiful Harvest Bridge that spans the Neponset River, from Milton to Mattapan.
    • Leave from the canoe launch on Central Ave in Mattapan.
    • IMPORTANT: plan to unload canoes at the launch (someone will be there to help you and watch your boat) then find parking and walk back to the launch (should take 5 min.)
    • Street parking is available on either Central Ave., Eliot Street, or Brook Hill Road in Mattapan, or on Maple Street in Milton.

 

  • Sat., Sept. 19 from 11-1 pm (arrive at 10:30 to unload canoes)
