Perkiomen Creek Sojourn On Tap for June 2

Blogger's Note: The following was provided by the law firm of Keenan, Ciccitto & Assoc. LLP.

The Perkiomen Creek Sojourn will be held Saturday, June 2, 2018, at 9 a.m.

The Perkiomen Watershed Conservancy has again teamed up with the law firm

of Keenan, Ciccitto  & Associates, LLP, located at 376 East Main Street in Collegeville, to conduct the canoeing and kayaking adventure down the Perkiomen. 

It begins  at the Conservancy Headquarters at the border of Schwenksville and ends at Hoy Park in Arcola. 

Every year, the Perkiomen Sojourn attracts more participants and becomes more interesting.

Andy Curtis, a Conservancy Board Member and expert canoeist, brings along a few friends and ensures that there are no disastrous consequences of tipping over in the river.

The scenery on this trip is spectacular. Each year an eagle or two is spotted, a mink is looking hungrily at some chickens, and herons are watching us as we pass by.

As the trip has grown in size, so has it become not just a pleasant ride, but an educational one. 

The Conservancy, generally at a lunch break, provides information on the organisms that live in the river and everyone participates in locating them and learning which ones indicate that the river is clean and unpolluted.

Free transportation is provided from Hoy Park, our take out site, to the Conservancy before the Sojourn, prior to launch. 
There are canoes and kayaks for rent. There is a safety instruction and the day before the event, the Conservancy makes a river run to ensure there are no obstructions.

Registration for members of the Perkiomen Watershed Conservancy is $35 and $55 for non-members.

Kayak and canoe rentals are $35. For further information and to register please visit or call 610-287- 9383. See you on the river!
