Sand Island Park
Join Wildlands Conservancy, Northampton County, and Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor staff as we work together to make a difference on our water trail. We will clean up trash as we travel on bikes between Bethlehem and Allentown on the D&L Trail along the canal. On our way back down, we will switch to canoes and clean-up the Lehigh River. Meet at Sand Island, Bethlehem. This program is underwritten by Northampton County Parks & Recreation.
