Our friends at the Schuylkill Canal Association will be hosting a fun-filled day on Sunday, August 21st. From 10:00am - noon, there will be a crawfish trap workshop. The SCA will be providing materials and assistance to build your own crawfish trap and teaching about the pertinent PA Fish & Game Commission regulation. $15/per trap and pre-registration is required. Later that day, from 1:00pm-3:00pm, you can hit the river for a canoe or kayak float, approximately 2.5 miles down the river, portaging back to the canal, and then paddling up the canal back to Lock 60. Children are welcome with adult supervision. This event is free, but donations to the Canal Association are appreciated. The Locktender's House will also be open until 4:00pm for anyone who wants to come take a look around.
