    • Mysteries of the Marsh - Fall Foliage Canoe Time: 2:00pm - 6:00pm Locations: Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary Details: The marsh is getting ready to go dormant for the year, but is not finished yet! We’ll look for late season flowers, migratory birds, beaver, otter, and other wildlife. Children must be at least 7 years old, and under 13 must be accompanied by two paddling adults.
