August 23, 24 and 25, 6 p.m.; August 28 and 30, 5:30 p.m., Tree Swallow Sunset Cruises, RiverQuest, Eagle Landing State Park, Haddam. $40. Enjoy this 3 to 3.5 hour on-the-water journey to a special spot on the river where 100's of thousands of Tree Swallows gather at sunset to sleep in the reeds. Before bed, they perform aerial ballets forming an amazing display of art, coordination and cooperation! Our vessels, RiverQuest and Adventure allow perfect views, ensuring everyone gets optimal "up close and personal" viewing. On our cruise down river, we will also see and learn about other wildlife, such as Bald Eagles, Great Egrets, Cormorants and more. On the return home, experience the river at twilight, blending into night. Chat with others or just relax. Bring your own picnic basket/favorite "beverage" to enjoy. Don't forget your camera and binoculars! No one under age 12 please. https://ctriverquest.com; 860-662-0577.
