Calling All Paddlers for Lake Tappan Paddle Day!


Third and final leg of Riverkeeper’s 2016 Reservoir Paddle Series set for August 13

Lake Tappan Paddle Day is a family-friendly day of paddling on the Lake Tappan Reservoir in Old Tappan, New Jersey. This year’s event takes place Saturday, August 13 (rain date August 14) and is a collaborative partnership between Hackensack Riverkeeper and SUEZ – formerly United Water. The paddle day is an annual fundraiser that supports Hackensack Riverkeeper’s mission to protect, preserve and restore the Hackensack River. It is also the conclusion of Riverkeeper’s annual Reservoir Paddle Series.

Now known as the “Triple Crown of Paddling in the Hackensack River Watershed”, the Reservoir Paddle Series offers unique public access to Lake DeForest, Oradell Reservoir, and Lake Tappan – bodies of water normally off-limits to the public. A complete description of the event including directions, schedule, rules and age restrictions is available online at www.hackensackriverkeeper.org or by calling 201-968-0808.

Lake Tappan Paddle Day consists of morning and afternoon paddling sessions: 9:30AM to Noon and 12:30 to 3:00PM. Check-in begins an hour prior to each session. Paddlers may bring their own boat or rent one from Riverkeeper’s fleet (single kayak, tandem kayak, or canoe). Paddlers are strongly encouraged to register online at www.hackensackriverkeeper.org.  Those who register by July 25 will receive one free event t-shirt per registration.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided to all paddlers beginning at 11:30 AM, courtesy of Inserra ShopRite. A water station will be maintained by SUEZ throughout the event.

Hackensack Riverkeeper thanks its partner, SUEZ, and sponsors, including Inserra Supermarkets, PSE&G, Hackensack University Medical Center, Orange and Rockland Electric Company, Ramsey Outdoor Stores and Whole Foods Market.

Founded in 1997 by Captain Bill Sheehan, Hackensack Riverkeeper is the leading organization working on Hackensack River issues. It employs a fourfold strategy of environmental action, advocacy, education and litigation in its mission to protect, preserve and restore the river and its 210-square mile watershed.
