Our Coastal Center Director Frank Gallo has been a man of the media lately! Here is a link to an article by Jim Shelton of the New Haven Register on Frank's popular family canoe trips through the marsh of Milford Point: http://newhavenregister.com/articles/2011/10/13/life/doc4e9614a411216505626554.txt
You can also see some video and photos at the link as well. Frank is the master of the marsh, and he will show you some amazing birds sometimes hidden among the beautiful vista. There can be more tucked away than meets the eye, and many birds may go unseen if not for the canoe trips. There are two trips left in October that you can still sign up for, so call the Coastal Center soon at 203-878-7440 x 502.
