The Wallkill River Watershed Alliance Boat Brigade will again host a public paddle on the river to both enjoy it and identify any concerns.

The Alliance’s Boat Brigade working group is chaired by Brenda Bowers. For more information or to RSVP, please contact Ms. Bowers at [email protected].

Bring your own boat, or reserve one from New Paltz Kayaking Tours. Owner Craig Chapman, an Alliance member and supporter, can be reached at 845-594-6353.

Please bring a small notebook and pen, a phone with GPS and camera if you feel comfortable (recognizing that you will be on the water, and are responsible for your own property). Also wear footwear that allows portage in shallow water. Be aware that you are responsible for your own safety.

This Boat Brigade will depart from the Orange County Boat Launch, East Main Street, in Middletown. Participants will paddle from there to Thomas Bull Memorial Park, 166-198 Grove street, Campbell Hall. The paddle takes place on Saturday, August 6 at 8 a.m.

Riverkeeper is supporting the effort by providing stream walk resources and other tips to help the effort be productive. Find reports of past boat brigades on the Boat Blog.
