HERYN (Helping Engage our River’s Youth with Nature) kayaking and fishing program

July 24 at 9:00 am - 4:30 pm


The popularity of the Middle Susquehanna Riverkeeper Association’s HERYN (Helping Engage our River’s Youth with Nature) kayaking and fishing program days and recent development of a Northern Tier Regional Director position has led to a new Northern Tier HERYN program opportunity to be held July 24 and 25 from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Each day will offer the same program to 20 different participants divided into two 10-person groups each day.

The program will take place at the Sugarbush Pavilion of the Hills Creek State Park near Wellsboro.  The program will contain intro to kayaking and fishing instruction as well as a Plants Hike and Stream Study.

Participants should be between the ages of 10 and 15 and will be learning the fundamentals of kayaking and fishing, as well as gaining a sense of environmental stewardship through watershed conservation.

The program is offered free to participants and all equipment is provided. Participants are required to pack their own lunch, bring a refillable water bottle, sunscreen and an extra change of clothing as well as appropriate footwear for watersports (ideally hard-soled water shoes).

Registration is capped at 20 participants per day and will be filled in a first-registered, first-secured order using the following form. Once we have the initial online registration, a more in-depth registration packet will be emailed out.
