Walkshop: Kayaking the Charles River and the Dam Locks

Walkshop: Kayaking the Charles River and the Dam Locks

Hop into a kayak and paddle with us along the Charles River Dam. We’ll visit the Gridley Locks–water channels–and experience the engineering up close, getting a first-hand sense of where the river meets the harbor. We’ll also visit the Kendall Square Canal, the Longfellow Bridge rehabilitation project, the Washington Street Bridge replacement project, and the Lovejoy Wharf ferry station. Along the way, we’ll discuss the importance of storm resiliency, green infrastructure and mechanisms for controlling water flow of the Charles River Basin, as well as the impact of development along the historic watershed.

Mode: Kayak
