The Middle Susquehanna Riverkeeper Association has scheduled six HERYN (Helping Engage our River's Youth with Nature) program days for June 20-25, 2025, at the Central PA Wesleyan Campground near New Columbia.
HERYN staff work with 12 different students -- ages 10-13 -- each day as they rotate between kayaking and fishing instruction that teaches the fundamentals in each activity and sparks a vested interest in our outdoor resources.

Thanks to a new sponsorship with the Susquehanna River Basin Commission, along with funding from a 2021 PA Fish and Boat Commission grant and partnerships with charitable local businesses, HERYN program days are free for participants. For more information about our HERYN program, click here.
