Join the American Littoral Society to canoe one of the Pine Barrens' gentlest and most relaxing rivers, the Wading River.
On Friday, June 28, Naturalists from the Society will guide you on a three-hour cruise of this unique and world-renowned New Jersey habitat. Together, we'll paddle through deep and shaded stands of the Atlantic white cedar forest, enjoy blueberries and azaleas in bloom, and enjoy a river-side lunch where we discuss Pine Barren history and tales of the Jersey Devil.

The American Littoral Society would like to thank the OceanFirst Foundation for donating $1,500 to sponsor six scholarships to the 2018 Sandy Hook Coast Camps, which run July 8-12 and August 5-9 this year.
Littoral Society camps allow children in grades 5-8 to have a great time while exploring the natural world. They do this by getting sand between their toes and their hands in the water under the guidance of our trained staff.
