A unique chance to experience the Lehigh River’s marvels is quickly approaching –


Let’s face it, the Lehigh Valley is a very populated region, and it keeps getting more and more crowded. Hence, it’s sometimes hard to envision ways to get away from all the strip malls, traffic and housing developments that seem to be everywhere you look. But, that’s exactly what makes the Wildlands Conservancy’s annual Lehigh River Sojourn so special and appealing.
Celebrating its 26th year this year, the Lehigh River Sojourn offers participants an up-close-and-personal, water-level view of the river and its environment. It’s a chance to explore a beautiful but sometimes overlooked part of our region, a green oasis amid all the concrete and steel.
This year’s sojourn is set for June 11-12, with the first day featuring a whitewater rafting excursion through the Lehigh Gorge and Lehigh Gorge State Park in Carbon County. There, the river has carved out a deep gorge over time, with steep hills jutting from the river’s banks and rushing creeks tumbling down the mountainsides as they make their way to the river. It’s an area that’s home to an abundance of wildlife — some of which you may even glimpse on your travels — including white-tailed deer, black bears, wild turkeys, foxes and more.
