Discover The Susquehanna River Watershed

Aug 29, 2014 02:39PM, Published by Erica Shames, Categories: Travel, Outdoors




The Chesapeake Bay Foundation’s Bay Discovery Program has three opportunities for the public to explore, via canoe, the Susquehanna River, Swatara Creek and the Yellow Breeches this summer. The trips are open to anyone, no matter the paddling skill-level.


Detailed paddling instruction and demonstration, as well as basic on-water safety training will be provided prior to each trip. Equipment including canoes, paddles, and lifejackets will be supplied. Participants should be prepared to be outside for several hours and wear appropriate clothing and footwear for canoeing and water activity.

Each trip is offered to the public for a $15 fee, discounted for CBF members.

The Susquehanna River is integral to the health of the Chesapeake Bay. With hundreds of rivers, creeks, and streams flowing into the nearly 444 mile-long Susquehanna, it ultimately provides over half of the fresh water to the Bay. These trips will provide paddlers with a unique opportunity to explore the waters, wildlife, plants, and aquatic species found in the Susquehanna Valley.
