Did you know that the entire eastern edge of Bethlehem is bordered by the great Hudson River? Nature along the Hudson in Bethlehem can be grand (like bald eagles), subtle (like umber shadowdragon dragonflies), and crazy (like fish that can climb waterfalls). Join Bethlehem Town Board member and ecologist, David VanLuven, for an easy Hudson River Kayak Eco-tour of the river and its tributary, the Vlomankill, to learn about local fish, birds, the watershed, and even see a small waterfall. Participants MUST bring their own kayaks and gear, including personal flotation device, and be proficient paddlers, paddling at their own risk. David will provide the ecological info, but is not a boating instructor.
Registration is limited. Please register by August 1st by emailing OpenSpace@townofbethlehem.org, including your name, phone number, and confirmation that you have your own kayak, paddle, and personal floatation device. This event is free and open to the public! Call Karen Shaw at 518-439-4955 x 1106 with any questions. See you on the Hudson River! Click here for the kayak program flyer.
