Natural Lands Trust (NLT) members got to try out the NLT-North Kayak Fleet this past Saturday. As part of the Fall Members’ Events, Jim Thompson and I offered a trips on the Delaware River. The weather turned out to be pretty good, despite a gruesome forecast. It was cloudy and we barely noticed the spotty drizzle (we were having fun splashing in the waves). Members traveled from as far away as Chester County and as close as just down the road to paddle a section of the River between Easton and Riegelsville. Here is a photo of paddlers with the Easton skyline in the background.
And here is a photo of a very happy paddler doing the run at Whippoorwill Island. Now that we have these kayaks, we will be doing more member events. The catch? You have to be a member. Now, you should want to be a member because NLT protects open space in your back yard. You should want to be a member, because we help connect people with nature. But isn’t it nice to know that a benefit of membership is the chance to take a ride down the Wild and Scenic Delaware River?
