Natural Awakenings South Jersey

Kayak Expedition and Picnic at Old Pine Farm Natural Lands Trust

Starting at 11 a.m. on June 20, Old Pine Farm Natural Lands Trust is hosting a kayak expedition and picnic. Attendees should bring their own kayak or canoe or use one of Old Pine Farm’s five kayaks to enjoy an adventure on the south branch of Big Timber Creek.

 Participants can choose to learn how to kayak from an experienced instructor or just head upstream on their own and explore the ways and byways as they seek out the beaver lodge, wild flowers and goose nests. They can also head downstream to enjoy the large vistas of marsh, water and sky with birds flying overhead.

 In COVID-19 style, attendees are asked to bring their own picnic food and blanket or eat at the picnic table. They are also asked to meet at the Willoughby House at the end of Pine Avenue, off Good Intent Road in Blackwood Terrace. There is an additional small parking lot available at the end of Rankin Avenue, one block from Pine Avenue. Carpooling is recommended. Transportation for equipment will be provided from the parking lot on Rankin Avenue to the creek at 11 a.m. and again at 11:30 a.m. (attendees are asked to be punctual). A composting toilet will also be provided.

 Cost: Free. Location: 340 Pine Ave., Deptford. For more information, call Sally Willowbee at 856-889-4160. Visit Facebook for potential changes and directions.
