Perkiomen Creek Sojourn
So maybe the idea of the Schuylkill River Sojourn tickles your fancy, but you've never done anything like that before, so you're not so sure you want to sign up for too many days.
Well, there is a way you can try out something similar a little closer to home and only lasts for a couple of hours.
The rain date is Saturday, June 15.
Canoes and Kayaks are available for rental at $30 for conservancy members and $55 for non-members.
By happy coincidence, the registration fee is also $30 for members and $55 for non-members.
You can get a printable registration form by clicking here.
Of you can print out a copy of this blog post and cut out the form I've pasted here.
The launch point for the event is Red Fox Park, adjacent to the Route 73 bridge over the Perkiomen Creek.
Parking is in the Conservancy parking lot across Route 73 from the launch site.
Take out is at Hoy park, along Arcola Road in Lower Providence Township. Know that transportation back from Hoy Park is limited, so if you have a partner, you may want to park one vehicle at Hoy and the other at Red Fox.
Remember to bring your own lunch and drink, a water bottle and sun screen.
For more information, call the conservancy at 610-287-9383.
Other event sponsors include Eastern Mountain Sports, the Wildlands Conservancy, Alpine Sanitation and the Pennsylvania Organization of Watersheds and Rivers.
