Earlier this summer, Gina Snyder and her family scored a second-hand canoe they couldn’t wait to try out. Rowing was a dream — but portage hammered home how much we need public river access.
For over ten years, the EFDC has been working to bring East Falls back to our river. Before my children were born, I took a kayak ride to tour the new river landing site and to better understand the river.
Last week, my husband Dave and I took our two sons out on our “new to us” canoe. One son wanted to fish, the other was just thrilled to be on an adventure. Dave wanted to give his new toy a whirl, and I wanted our children to experience the river, and how close-by we live.
