BUSHKILL, Pa. — The National Park Service is hosting the 29th annual On and Under the Delaware River Clean-up on Tuesday, July 17. The annual event, sponsored by the Milford-based Kittatinny Canoes, the oldest and largest canoe livery operator in the country, will take place on the Middle Delaware National Scenic and Recreational River within the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. The National Park Service is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act of 1968 and park employees from all park divisions will be participating in commemoration of that milestone.
The Middle Delaware River was included in the Wild and Scenic Rivers system in 1978.
Volunteers and National Park Service employees will paddle sections of the river in canoes while picking up trash from the shorelines, islands, and the river bottom along the way. Breakfast, dinner, canoes, gear, a T-shirt and transportation are provided by Kittatinny Canoes. To register, call Kittatinny Canoes at 800-356-2852.
The Pennsylvania Environmental Council is providing trash removal and recycling services at no charge.
