The Connecticut River is a powerful force that marks the boundaries of Vermont and New Hampshire. Many people spend years crossing over it without so much as ever dipping a finger in its waters. The river has an ageless environmental history that invites humans to try and understand it.

One way to begin a connection to the river is by joining enthused kayakers and canoeists for the twice-yearly Paddle the Border event held in May and October. This free event, held for the 12th year on Sunday, October 4, with a suggested launch time of 10:30 to 11:30am, is designed to make paddling a section of the river easy, with a free shuttle service, a Woodsville and Wells River Rotary scholarship fundraiser cookout, and a bluegrass band.
