What better way is there to spend a summer Saturday than on the beautiful Delaware River? A outdoor summer series from Hunterdon County Park & Recreation invites families to explore the local waterways.
Arrive at theArboretum in Lebanon on Saturday at 8:15 AM. Kids ages 8 and up as well as adults can attend for $30 per trip.
Leaders will fit participants with a lifejacket and paddle and then drive to the river, where they will discuss maneuvering techniques and canoe safety. The group will paddle for about two hours, stop for lunch, and paddle for about two more hours. Exact timing depends in part on natural forces, such as wind speed and the river’s water level. The goal is to return to the Arboretum by 3:30 PM, give or take an hour. Here’s the line-up:
Sat., Aug. 6: Delaware: Phillipsburg to Riegelsville
Sat., Aug. 20: Delaware: Kingwood to Bull’s Island
Sat., Sept. 3: Delaware: Phillipsburg to Riegelsville
Sat., Sept. 24: Delaware: Martins Creek to Phillipsburg
Sat., Oct. 8: South Branch
Sat., Oct. 22: Leaders’ Choice
Please note: Due to water levels or other circumstances beyond our control, it may be necessary to select an alternative river. Leaders may make this change at any time in order to provide a safe and fun experience.
