The Housatonic Valley Association is offering a guided Housatonic River paddle trip from 3 to 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 19.

This six mile trip will take paddlers under the Mass. Pike to South Lee through farmland with views of Beartown Mountain.

Some paddling experience is preferable as there is a bit of quickwater and a couple of downed trees to negotiate.

Pre-registration is required; detailed information will be provided upon registration.

For more information and to register, call 413-394-9796, email Alison Dixon at, or visit
