Schuylkill Sojourn 2016 - The Philadelphia Experience
Hosted by the non-profit Schuylkill River National and State Heritage Area (SRHA) since 1998, the Schuylkill Sojourn draws paddling enthusiasts, environmental advocates, history buffs and more while showcasing the scenic and natural splendor of a river that provides drinking water to more than 1.5 million people and contributes over a half billion dollars to the local economy annually.

Laura Catalano, a spokeswoman for SRHA, says the 2016 trek was the most popular ever: an average of 110 people were on the water each day, and a record 79 participants made the full trip, which lasted June 3-June 10. On the final leg, 115 Sojourners made their way from West Conshohocken to Boathouse Row above Philadelphia’s Fairmount Dam.
