All trips are led by an experienced NJMC tour guide. The commission supplies all of the equipment and give you helpful tips before setting out on the water.
* Sunday July 26, 8:30 a.m. from Sawmill Creek Wildlife Management Area.
* Saturday, August 9, 8:30 a.m. from Mill Creek in Secaucus.
Participants should be at least 10 years old and have some canoeing experience. Pre-registration is required. The cost is $15 per person.
