Author: Visit Poconos/Monday, July 17, 2017/Categories: Poconos Events, Pocono Attractions Articles

Event date: 7/17/2017 - 7/19/2017 Export event

Kittatinny Canoes' annual river cleanup is a major success, in large part to our faithful volunteers who come back year after year. Hundreds of volunteers give their time to help preserve and protect the ecology of the river and its inhabitants. Kittatinny, in return for their time and loyalty, provides complimentary canoes, campsites, breakfast, and a barbecue dinner to all of the volunteers.

The volunteers are organized according to skill, some just picking up trash and debris along the banks and where the water is shallow; others are divers and snorkelers who concentrate on the deeper sections of the river. As a team, they are unstoppable!able!

How to Participate:
On Monday, July 17th, we will meet at Kittatinny Campgrounds, located at 3854 State 97, Barryville, NY, 12719. On Tuesday, July 18th, we will meet at our Dingmans Base, located next to the Dingmans Ferry Bridge. On Wednesday, July 19th, we will be at the Matamoras Base sorting the trash collected from the River Clean Up. Free camping is offered on all days of the cleanup. Breakfast and dinner are provided.

We are making a difference and we encourage you and the media to join us in our environmentally conscious endeavor, please contact Kittatinny Canoes at 1-800-FLOAT-KC for details or e-mail us at info@kittatinny.com and in the subject line write "River Clean-Up 2017."

All river clean-up participants are required to RSVP with us so we may arrange boats, work groups and meals. Camping is limited and must be reserved by our river clean-up management staff.

If you are a repeat volunteer please give us a call to secure the day or days you are interested in helping out. If you are new to the river cleanup please give us a call to put your name on a list.

 

During the previous 27 years of doing this cleanup we have removed 8,967 tires, 8,750 pounds of aluminum cans and a total of 457.48 tons of trash. This is our way of giving back to this great resource, the Delaware River.

 

We are making a difference and we encourage you and the media to join us in our environmentally conscious endeavor. Please contact Kittatinny Canoes at 1-800-FLOAT-KC or email us at info@kittatinny.com so that we may provide you with more information or make your reservations.

Poconos Events

There’s So Much On The Horizon in the Poconos, You’ll Be Head Over Hills!  Most likely, you’ll have a hard time deciding what to do next. You may decide to hit a food and wine festival to nourish your foodie soul – or maybe you’ll want to see a show. Great! You can do both. In fact, you can do a lot more than that. The Poconos has concerts, festivals, races, comedy shows, theater, carnivals, and county fairs.

The Poconos concerts run the gamut from local acts to national tours – and the genres run the gamut from rock to blues to country. Pocono Mountain festivals celebrate everything from beer to garlic to wieners! And what about the fantastic food concoctions you’ll run into on the midway at the county fairs -­‐ who’s up for deep-­‐fried Oreos?

All sorts of Pocono events are coming up, such as art and music festivals, NASCAR and Indy races, and more! In the Pocono Mountains, you can do whatever you want.

If you have an event and want to submit it for inclusion in our site, please send it to Events@VisitPoconos.com.  Please include event info and photo(s).  If you would like us to cover your event, we have writers and contributors who may be able to attend.
