Troop 56 Passaic River Clean--Up Canoe Trip
Saturday May 12th 2018
We will meet at 8AM in the Fisherman's parking lot off of White Bridge Road in Basking Ridge just over the Long Hill Township border. We will paddle our way down scenic and peaceful surrounding. We will remove any trash that we find along the way, only bringing it aboard the canoes if it can be done safety. See if you can identify 10 things in nature. Along the the way you will have a chance to ride the mild rapids through the gorge and paddle smooth water to our lunch point. Then we will continue down the river to our end point at Kantor Park.
Departure Time/Location: Meet at 08:00AM at the Fisherman's Parking Lot on White Bridge Road, Basking Ridge
