NPS announces Summer Paddle and River Clean-up

July 9, 2014

RIVER VALLEY — The Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River is seeking people who would like to participate in a river clean-up. Everyone is invited to join National Park Service (NPS) rangers on Sunday, July 27 as they paddle down the river plucking litter from the shoreline as well as from the river bottom. The clean-up area will cover six miles and should last approximately five hours.

This river clean-up will run from the Ten Mile River Access down to the Lackawaxen Access. Paddlers are asked to meet at the Zane Grey Museum in Lackawaxen, PA at 9 a.m. The NPS will provide the vehicle shuttle, canoes, lifejackets and paddles. The activity will take place rain or shine. You should expect to get wet, so please be prepared with the appropriate gear including extra clothing, proper footwear, sunscreen, plenty of water, a hat and a lunch.

This year’s river clean-up is limited to the first 20 who register, so call your family and friends and help keep your river wild and scenic. For directions or more information call 507/685-4871 by July 26.
