Enjoy a Thursday evening paddling on the water, learning what makes Mattituck Inlet so unique.

In honor of New York State’s first-ever Invasive Species Awareness Week, Group for the East End and the WATERWASH Projects are hosting an informative paddle ride around the waterway.

The paddle is scheduled for Thursday, July 10 at 6 p.m. Meet at the Mattituck Boat ramp, located on Route 48 between Westphalia and Love Lane.

The fish and wildlife habitat consists of approximately 60 acres of tidal wetland and creek, 10 acres of shoals and mudflats and 80 acres of protected park district land on both sides of the Mattituck Inlet jetties.

Located at the head of Mattituck Creek, the WATERWASH Mattituck project is a model for stormwater runoff that was created to improve water quality and provide wildlife habitat.
