River Ramble 2017

1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 6

Take an interactive tour
of Pond Creek and the Marshalls Creek
with local naturalists



Join us for the annual River Ramble, an eco-tour of the Marshalls/Pond Creek area, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 6, starting at the Middle Smithfield Township Municipal Building.


Participants will tour natural highlights along a mapped route, each spot staffed by some of the area’s finest naturalists eager to share their knowledge and love of the watershed.

The interactive, drive-yourself tour will feature a talk on the natural history of the valley, a beaver-created pond/creek system, a jaunt at Judy Putek Park with a renowned bug expert, the secrets of operating the Oak Grove Multi-Municipal Leaf Composting Facility, and little-known facts about the area's geography.

Ramblers will also visit public areas on the Resica Falls Scout Reservation to see the falls (right) and hear about the camp’s conservation efforts.


RAIN BARREL WORKSHOP: In an optional pre-Ramble workshop, participants can learn about the finer points of building a rain barrel. The workshop will be held at noon at Middle Smithfield Municipal Building. See registration details below.


AFTER-RAMBLE PARTY: 4 to 5 p.m. at Resica Park. Enjoy good food and conversation at the traditional after-Ramble party.
