Promote Awareness for Adopt-A-Creek

Out paddling the oxbow, today. Quite a mess! Adopt-a-Creek event will be on 13 April in historic Mt. Holly Village. Invite extended to all—come out for a fun-filled day of clean up along the Rancocas. The winter season was harsh on this little gem of a waterway, and it’s probably fair to say our creek could use a bit of “tincture of time on the tides.”

Adopt-a-Creek is modeled on Access Funds’ Adopt-a -Crag events. The Mt. Holly Oxbow needs little help from all who paddle the creek or trek along the emergent Rancocas Greenway. The day’s activities are no-cost and meals are on your own. An afternoon “Sudz on the Creek” paddle will be led by Rancocas Pathways’ program director. All legal-age paddlers are welcome to visit creek-side restaurants, pubs and a local distillery in support of local businesses, as Mt. Holly continues plans for a downtown renaissance. Do expect plenty of mud and prepare for wet conditions.

Feel free to zap any questions to John Anderson at: See you on the 13th! In the interim, start limbering-up those shoulders for some early spring paddling.

FYI: Rancocas Pathways recently secured state approval for significant road improvements into Melpine Landing over at Rancocas State Park. This is a most welcome development for all who love discovering the great outdoors! Help keep this ‘Rolling on the Rancocas’ momentum going!!
