Experience the joy of the Schuylkill River while DRIFTING down from the Leesport area in a kayak. THIS EVENT IS GEARED TOWARD PADDLERS WITH SOME EXPERIENCE. FOR THE SAFETY OF THE GROUP, PLEASE NO NOVICE KAYAKERS. Participants will meet at Jim Dietrich Park near the red brick pavilion at noon. You will be given an overview of the day and then travel to the Leesport Post Office area (4 East Wall St., Leesport) to gain access to the river. The rental equipment will be awaiting you in Leesport. We are partnering with Blue Marsh Outdoors to provide the equipment for the float down the river at the cost of $35/person. This includes a kayak, a paddle and personal floatation device (PFD). This is an open event; you may participate if you have your own equipment for $10/person.
