Time on the Water with Assabet Valley Collaborative

There was no better way to beat the heat this week than on a kayaking program with Assabet Valley Collaborative.  Although we had participants with varying kayaking experience, all were excited to cool down on the water! Our three reminders for the day were to encourage one another, stay safe, and be cool.  We were able to do these things and more as we paddled along the Charles and talked about our waypoints for the day.

One participant’s “waypoint”, or memory from the day, was simply dipping her hand in the water as we paddled.  We always enjoy our time with Assabet Valley Collaborative and look forward to seeing them again soon!
