The Middle Susquehanna Riverkeeper Association is offering an additional Floating Classroom session aboard the Hiawatha Paddleboat near Williamsport, open to the public, on Tuesday, Sept. 28, from 9:45-10:45 a.m. focused on bird species that frequent the river, wetlands and other regional waterways.
Dan Brauning, from the Lycoming County Audubon Society, will offer a presentation on these species on the lower level of the Hiawatha Paddleboat, and volunteers from the society will conduct a bird watching/identification experience on the upper level of the boat as it travels along the West Branch of the Susquehanna River.
Tickets for the float are limited, and the program will follow guidelines provided from the Hiawatha Paddleboat staff in regards to COVID regulations at the time of the float. Participants are encouraged to bring their own binoculars and any birding field guides they may have. Tickets can be purchased here:
