Manhattan Avenue Street End Park, on the shores of Newtown Creek Free! Outdoors/Community event
North Brooklyn Boat Club’s 2019 Public Paddle series really takes the paddling to the public!
Through the generous partnership of NYC Parks, we are holding our 2019 Public Paddles in the Manhattan Avenue Street End Park at the very top of Greenpoint. Come join us for fellowship with your friends and neighbors and paddling on the waters of New York City! The Public Paddles let NBBC do what we do best: fulfill our mission to enable access to the waterways of New York City for our local community. We’ll have canoe tours with views of Manhattan, tasty beverages and snacks on hand, and friends and neighbors gathering together on the shores of Newtown Creek.
No matter where you live, NBBC is your community boat club. Come join us to start up another great season of
Community • Advocacy • Adventure • Paddling!

the past three years, the Conservation Committee has partnered with Hudson River Sloop Clearwater to
manage Aqua Invasive Species (AIS) in Lake Sebago. AIS grow so rapidly that
they overtake the native plants and animals, wrecking havoc on the ecosystem
and, in some cases, impeding recreational activities such as paddling and
Aqua Invasives, such as hydrilla, have infested and
clogged the Croton River, and other invasives have ravaged parts of Lake George
in upstate New York, costing hundreds of thousands of dollars to control.
Spring will be here soon – we hope. It has been a very cold winter. If you are planning to come to ACA Camp at Lake Sebago more than a few times, it pays to buy a season pass. Download the form here – Seaon Pass Application 2016
The ACA is committed to making the world a better place to paddle. A major program is the on-going Stream to Sea Initiative that will equip users with the knowledge and tools necessary to clean navigable waterways and paddling environments while recreating.
