2013 Annual River Sojourn

On Saturday, June 1, the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy will host a trip to the Allegheny River.

Participants will paddle 16 miles of this historic stretch of river from Buckaloon’s Recreational Area in Irvine, Pa. to Tidioute, Pa. This year’s trip includes activities and presentations centered on the theme “Back to the Allegheny: A Float Through Time” and will include activities and presentations that will explore the region’s history, present and future.


The upper Allegheny River meanders through towns such as Warren, Irvine and Tidioute, Pa., a region that was the site of Native American settlements, European immigration, the first man-made oil well and the Kinzua Dam. This combination of cultural and ecological heritage has shaped the present state of the Allegheny River.

Sponsors for the sojourn include Pennsylvania Organization for Watersheds and Rivers (POWR), Allegheny Outfitters and the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy.

Registration for this event is now closed.
