Lehigh River Trail– Conservation,Recreation,Education


Join the Lehigh Valley Kayak and Canoe Club Thursday, March 1, at 7 PM for a presentation on the Lehigh River Water Trail at the Wildlands Conservancy, Pool Wildlife Sanctuary in Emmaus PA.

The Pennsylvania Water Trails Partnership was established in 2008 as a way to share promotion and encourage better management of water trails across the Commonwealth. Our presenter, Chris Strohler, senior conservation planner for the Wildlands Conservancy, will briefly explain the partnership program, the designation of the Lehigh River Water Trail, and how the mission of Wildlands Conservancy plays into their role as Water Trail Manager. Chris will outline some of the previously completed projects on the Lehigh and future goals of the Lehigh River Water Trail Access & Stewardship Plan.

Chris joined Wildlands in 2013. He brings a strong knowledge of Geographic Information Systems (GIS), cartography, and land use planning. Prior to coming on board, his mapping skills were utilized by several local municipalities and Hawk Mountain Sanctuary. He is a graduate of Kutztown University with a B.A. in Geography. He enjoys hiking, camping, kayaking, mountain biking and snowboarding.

The Lehigh River Water Trail is 72 miles long, starting at White Haven and ending in the City of Easton at the Lehigh River’s confluence with the Delaware River. There the traveler can continue down the Delaware toward Philadelphia and beyond to Delaware Bay. The Lehigh River is a state-designated Scenic River and offers a wide diversity of plant and animal life.

Wildlands Conservancy, the premier nonprofit land trust of the Lehigh Valley and 10-county Lehigh River watershed, also serves as the Lehigh River’s designated water trail manager. Wildlands has been creating lasting connections to nature since 1973 through land protection, environmental stewardship and education. As the Lehigh River Water Trail manager, Wildlands forwards education and recreation opportunities that support the continued protection of the Lehigh River, maintaining a perpetual focus on improved water quality and wildlife habitat throughout the watershed.

Light refreshments will be served. Following the presentation will be a business meeting of the Lehigh Valley Kayak and Canoe Club. All are welcome!

When surfing a hole in a royalex canoe, are the opposing currents, the one going downstream and the recirculating one going upstream, strong enough to fold the canoe in half??
