Wyoming Valley RiverFest on June 23rd and 24th. RiverFest is a 2-day celebration of the Susquehanna River and the River Common featuring programs for individuals and families on and off the water.
The NBLT is looking for folks who are willing to put in a few hours on Saturday, the 23rd and/or Sunday, the 24th to man a table with NBLT information. There will be boats practicing and the brightly colored kayaks and canoes of the river sojourners arrive at Nesbitt Park. Plus there will be some great music. On Sunday you’ll have a front row seat to watch the sojourners depart and the Dragon Boats complete. Last year the mayor of Wilkes-Barre’s Dragon Boat capsized making for a ‘daring rescue’! Who knows what scenes you’ll have a chance to witness this year! PLUS, you’ll be helping to get the word out about NBLT and our important land conservation mission.
