Water Quality Paddle with Schuylkill River Heritage Area

August 19, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm EDT

$25 - $35

Get up close and personal with water quality!

Green Valleys Watershed Association is teaming up with the Schuylkill River Heritage Area and Take It Outdoors Adventures to offer a one-time water quality paddle from Pottstown to Linfield. Participants will meet up at Pottstown’s Riverfront Park. There, following a brief discussion on water quality issues, invasive species and river health, we will launch and begin paddling toward Linfield. Midway we will stop for water quality testing using Bluetooth-enabled sensors and talk about the findings. Then we will continue onto Linfield Park and take a shuttle back to Pottstown.

Cost is $25 per person; $35 if you need to rent a boat. Must be 16 and up to participate; under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Space limited to 12 participants, although a waiting list will also be set up. Online, advance registration through Schuylkill River Heritage Area’s Eventbrite page. Questions: please contact 484-945-0200 or visit the event page.
