Canoe&Kayak, QW, Black Creek Paddle and Clean-up

Date and Time

Sunday, June 28, 2020, 10:00AM - 2:00PM


Town of Lloyd, Ulster County, NY,
New York, Hudson River Valley,


Registration is required for this activity. Please contact leader.


Paddle the Black Creek for a few hours of light water trail maintenance, followed by an optional pleasure paddle. Bring saws, loppers, rope, work gloves, litter bags. If you don't have these tools, contact the leader for loaners. Must bring your own canoe or kayak. PFDs must be worn while on the water. Boats may be rented from AMC-NY/NoJ at reasonable rates, but must be car-topped to the launch and back. Located a few miles E of New Paltz, NY, the Black Creek is a quiet water meander through a wetland. The banks remain undeveloped and one gets the sense that they're in a wild area. Beavers, various birds and turtles call the creek home. If you plan on participating, please contact the leader to let him know you're coming.
