Is this event a fundraiser?
Yes. This year’s proceeds will go toward the development of new environmental programs. Glen Foerd will develop and implement a boat and bike program as the first step towards a full complement of environmental and recreational programs. Glen Foerd’s new dock, which will open in 2018, will provide a launch point and operating base for existing boating and water-based programs offered by area educational institutions. The boating component of Glen Foerd’s boat and bike program, will be led by an environmental educator. Paddlers will learn about the Delaware Watershed’s ecosystem and the area’s history. To give everyone the opportunity to experience one of Philadelphia’s most beautiful areas along the tidal Delaware River, free community boating days will be offered on select Saturdays. The project is made possible in part through a grant by The William Penn Foundation.
