Mark your calendars! The 2015 Delaware River Sojourn will take place from Saturday, June 20 through Saturday, June 27. The theme will be Birthplace of America, and programming will highlight the river and region's rich history.
Held in June to celebrate National Rivers Month, the Delaware River Sojourn is a guided paddling trip on the wild and scenic Delaware River, combining canoeing/kayaking, camping, educational programs, and historical interpretation. Geared for novice to experienced paddlers, participants can sign up for the whole event or for the section(s) or day(s) of their choice. By getting individuals out on the river to experience it first-hand, the Delaware Sojourn aims to promote stewardship of the Delaware River Watershed and its resources.
