Kayak in Clinton on Saturday, Sept. 23

Interested in learning to kayak or improving your paddling skills? Join Raritan Headwaters, the region’s watershed watchdog, for an open paddle in the gentle waters of the South Branch of the Raritan River in Clinton on Saturday, Sept. 23, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Using its new fleet of kayaks, Raritan Headwaters can accommodate up to 12 paddlers at a time for each one-hour time slot. Advance registration is recommended to reserve a time slot, but paddlers may also drop by for a first-come, first-served paddling opportunity. The event is free, though donations are appreciated.

To register online, go to http://ow.ly/PY7E30f45T9. Paddlers will meet at the Water Street municipal parking lot in Clinton. Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
