Evening Paddle on Hopewell Lake

Lazy, warm summer evenings are a wonderful time for being on the water, especially in a location as beautiful as French Creek State Park. Join Valley Forge Audubon Society and DCNR naturalist Jared Brandt for an evening paddle on Hopewell Lake as we look and listen for birds, beavers, and other wildlife in the evening twilight.  Last year the nighthawks put on a show for us – what will we discover this time?

The minimum age to participate is 10 years old.

This is a bring-your-own-boat event, although there will be a limited number of kayaks for rent.  Please note that rentals must be reserved in advance.  For cost information and to reserve a rental boat, please contact Jared Brandt at jabrandt@pa.gov or (610) 582-9680.

Meet at the Hopewell Lake boat launch area near the park office at the address shown.
