River Ramble 2016

1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 7

Take an interactive tour
of McMichael Creek
with local naturalists





Brodhead Watershed Association will host this popular annual event starting and ending at the scenic and historic at Pohoqualine Fish Association in Chestnuthill Township. Ramble participants will follow  a scenic route along Route 715, following the windings of McMichael Creek.


Stations throughout the Ramble will be staffed by experts sharing their love and knowledge of the Brodhead watershed.


There will be a variety of activities – including electro-fishing – to enjoy at this celebration of McMichael Creek and the Brodhead watershed in which we live and play.

New this year is a stop at Mountain View Vineyard in Neola. Learn how the vineyard’s farming practices contribute to the McMichael’s status as an Exceptional Value creek. Owners Randy and Linda Rice are committed to sustainable agriculture, growing their grapes with minimal environmental impact and preserving open space. Randy Rice will discuss his vineyard expansion plans on preserved farmlands, as well as water and pesticide minimization.

Ramble stops will include Stone Lake Inn, a bed-and-breakfast recently opened on 6+ creek-side acres in Saylorsburg; and Big Woods Natural Area. The route also passes the Miller and Bond family farms, which have been preserved to ensure they remain farmland forever.
