Ecology History Paddle Trips

Join us on a youth-led guided paddling trip down the tidal Cooper River through Camden to learn about the fascinating ecological and industrial history of this piece of the Delaware Watershed. The route finishes with stunning views of the Philadelphia skyline from the back channel of the Delaware River. Each trip is led by our trained Urban BoatWorks RiverGuides, all of whom are Camden youth.  The trip is fully outfitted with boats and equipment. Contact Vicki Carberry, UrbanTrekkers Environmental Educator to learn about additional environmental education paddling field trip opportunities and private tours for your students, after school program, or conservation group.
