Tidal Schuylkill Kayak Tour

This small group kayak tour of the unique landscape of the tidal Schuylkill River will be led by environmental artist and educator Joanne Douglas. The tour will educate paddlers on the tides, river health, plants, animals, history and the fossil fuel industries of this ‘hidden’ section of the river, downstream from Bartram’s Garden towards the confluence with the Delaware. Kayaks, paddles, and lifejackets will be provided. This is a flat and calm stretch of river, so all skill levels welcome! Expect moderate physical exertion.

Registration required. All participants will pay a cash fee when they arrive – $5 for Bartram’s Garden Members, $15 for non-members.

We are offering this tour 4 times in September. Please only sign up for one tour – it is the same program on all 4 dates.

Minors must be accompanied by a parent/guardian. Children 11 years and younger are not allowed to be in a boat alone – an adult must accompany them in a tandem kayak.
