NARROWSBURG – The Upper Delaware Council’s (UDC) 35th Annual Family Raft Trip attracted 95 guests on August 6th to paddle a scenic six-mile stretch of the Upper Delaware River from the Staircase Access in the Town of Lumberland, NY to Matamoras in Westfall Township, PA on a picture-perfect summer day.
The turnout included 92 adults and three children ages 4-12 to take advantage of the host livery’s discounted group rates and the trip coordination provided by the UDC. Guests hailed from throughout the tri-state NY, PA, NJ region.
Kittatinny Canoes provided the rafts, paddles, life vests, morning shuttles, and pre-launch safety briefings.
The UDC organizes this public event on the first Sunday of August each year on alternating sections of the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River with the goal of promoting awareness and stewardship through direct contact with the recreational resource.
The Upper Delaware Council is the non-profit organization that oversees the Federal, two States, and local governments partnership which cooperatively manages and conserves the 73.4-mile nationally designated Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River.
