Join HarborLAB on the wild frontier of New Jersey! 😉
HarborLAB will paddle the beautiful and recovering river called Hackensack, from the Lenape word Achinigeu-hach, or Ackingsah-sack, “meaning flat confluence of streams.” More about the waterway from the indefatigable Hackensack Riverkeeper (http://www.hackensackriverkeeper.org/history.html). Our thanks to Extended Stay America hotel for trailer parking and launch access. The launch is near the Hackensack Meadowlands Conservation and Wildlife Area.
We would welcome the public the Hackensack Riverkeeper serves to join us, and its staff or members, and for others from outside the area to join the exploration. Total capacity of 20, with volunteers and students getting priority. We might be able to offer some rides, and our boat trailer might have capacity for private boats. Wesley Miller will coordinate the trailer loading.
This will be a casual paddle to explore, learn, and enjoy each other’s company. Paul Baker will lead this trip and sets its final schedule. We aim for high water so the ramp is less muddy.
Tides for North Secaucus, Garretts Reach starting with August 24, 2013.
