In an effort to continue momentum started via its introductory HERYN (Helping Engage our River's Youth with Nature) program, the Middle Susquehanna Riverkeeper Association is holding a specialized "Blue HERYN" sojourn open only to graduates of the the original HERYN program.
The Blue HERYN program day is scheduled for Thursday, June 30, 2022, on the Penns Creek in Union/Snyder counties with two timeslots to accommodate as many participants as possible.
The first session will run from 8 a.m. until noon, with the second session slated for 1-5 p.m. Each session will begin at the park in New Berlin, Union County. Instruction will include a refresher of skills learned during HERYN followed by safety skills for kayaking along moving waterways and tips for success when combining kayaking and fishing.
The session will include a short sojourn from New Berlin to Kratzerville. Participants are to be dropped off in New Berlin before their session is to begin and picked up at the Penns Creek bridge behind Kratzerville at the end of their session.
The program is free for participants and will include staff members from the 2021 HERYN program and other volunteers. The program is weather and creek condition-dependent and the Middle Susquehanna Riverkeeper Association holds the right to cancel or postpone the event to maximize a safe and enjoyable experience.
