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.

    Robin Trower

    Penn’s Peak is proud to announce Robin Trower, Wednesday, April 4, 2018 at 8:00 pm in Jim Thorpe PA.  The Robin Trower story started in the mid Sixties when he began his recording career in the Southend rhythm and blues band The Paramounts. But the first time Trower pinged on rock’n’roll’s radar was in 1967, with Procol Harum – house band of the Summer of Love. Though he did not play on their mega-hit ‘A Whiter Shade Of Pale’, he completed five albums and many tours with them before breaking away for a solo career in 1971.
