D&R Greenway Land Trust Announces Virtual Series with Kayaking Opportunity
Have you ever driven over a Delaware River bridge and wondered, “What lives in that water?” Now you can find out! D&R Greenway is offering a series of virtual presentations with discussion – free of charge – about Delaware River natural, historic, and cultural places that can be discovered locally. Lucky participants who attend all four sessions in the series will be rewarded with a guest certificate for a kayak experience in D&R Greenway’s new fleet of boats kept at Bordentown Beach.
May 10: Geography and History
Most people who live in the region find themselves driving along or across the Delaware River several times each month, if not daily. In the early months of 2020, D&R Greenway Land Trust was planning to launch an on-the-water educational program to introduce people to the value and importance of the Delaware River with an on-the-water kayaking experience. As with many things, this program was significantly affected by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. This past winter, D&R Greenway’s Community Conservation Fellow, Maria Stahl, organized a four session virtual series about unique aspects of the river environs. Piloted this spring with high school students in the Futuro program of the Latin American Legal Defense and Education Fund, this series is now open for the first time to the public.
