SUSQUEHANNA ISLAND HOPPER A BIG SUCCESS!

 

On August 3rd, 100 participants - from experienced paddlers to first-timers – navigated 12 miles of the river from Isle of Que to the Mahantango access.  The single file line of canoes and kayaks navigating McKees Half Falls “was quite a sight to see,” said Mike Traxler, SRTA President. 

 

One highlight was the campsite set-up on Island 109 by Joe Frassetta and Marci Mowery who taught the participants about island camping. The 

presenters themselves then spent the night on island, braving wicked storms.  

 

Overall, it was a special day. A big SRTA thank you goes out to:

  • Susquehanna Greenway Partnership for collaborating on the event

  • Jim Charles for his presentation on the history of the Isle of Que.  

  • Joe and Marci for the campsite and program

  • All SRTA and Air Force volunteers

  • Selinsgrove Borough and the Port Trevorton Fire Company for use  of their launch and picnic grounds.  

  • Sponsors: Weis Markets, PA DCNR, POWR, UPMC Susquehanna
