Bioluminescent Paddle on Ninigret Pond with Charlestown Land Trust

August 30, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

THIS EVENT IS AT CAPACITY. To join the waitlist, please email Angela Brunetti at

Join the Charlestown Land Trust and the Salt Ponds Coalition for a partner Bioluminescent Paddle on Ninigret Pond in our beautiful Charlestown, RI. In the summer, bioluminescent comb jellyfish make their way into coastal waters as the temperature warms up. On a dark, warm summer night they can often be found near the surface of the water where they are easily disturbed. Paddlers will be delighted by the glow emitted by these amazing creatures with every stroke of their paddle. Check out some properties protected by CLT along the paddle!

Additional details:

  • Paddlers are expected to bring their own gear (kayak or paddleboard), including a PFD which must be worn during the paddle.
  • Since this paddle takes place after dark, please be sure to bring headlamps or flashlights.
  • Participants must complete a waiver at time of paddle.
  • This event is weather dependent. If the event is cancelled due to inclement weather, participants will receive notice
