BEACH LAKE, PA – On Saturday August 29th at 10:30am, two Park Rangers from Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River will be teaching basic paddling techniques as well as ways to stay safe while canoeing on the river. The event will be held at the Narrowsburg DEC Access in Narrowsburg, NY.
If you have always wanted to try canoeing, or would like to brush up on your skills, now is your chance! Paddlers of all skill levels welcome! Paddling instruction will consist of land based instruction followed by testing your new found knowledge out in the Narrowsburg Pool. Bring family and friends to have a fun learning experience on the river.
This event is free and open to the public. The National Park Service will provide the canoes, paddles, and life jackets. We ask that you bring appropriate gear, including sunscreen, appropriate foot wear, a hat, and a change of clothes.
