The Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources/Jacobsburg Environmental Education Center in Wind Gap is sponsoring "Long Pond Kayak Adventure" on Saturday, June 12, from 4 p.m. to dusk.

The event will take a look at wetland plants, birds, and other animals; and combines discovery and adventure with outdoor recreation and healthy exercise. Bring a kayak or canoe and life vest because a limited number of kayaks are available.

Dress for the weather and bring binoculars.
