Big thanks to Brian Snow and his 13 year old son Skyler Snow who graciously donated the proceeds of their kayaking expedition down the Passaic River to Newark Riverfront Revival programming! Their courageous journey ended at the Boat Dock at Newark Riverfront Park and their donation will go towards our free public kayaking days!
Take from Skyler, the Passaic River is still a gem to be explored! “Despite the pollution, there are some beautiful sights to see on the Passaic,” Snow concluded.
