Expedition Objective

In brief, the Perki-Bay Expedition is designed to be a resource awareness campaign centered on the protection of the Perkiomen Creek. The actual project will consist of a 5-day paddling expedition where members of our youth conservation program will paddle the Perkiomen Creek from its source to the Delaware Bay. Our end goal for this expedition is to generate increased community support for the protection of the creek and it's hopeful addition to the Pennsylvania Water Trail Program.
