River Ramble on the Brodhead Aug. 9, 2015


The River Ramble, this year featuring the Upper Brodhead, will be held 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 9. Brodhead Watershed Association hosts the popular annual outdoor event.

Visit the scenic and historic Brodhead Hunting and Fishing Club at 3775 Creek Road, Canadensis, and other land not always open to the public.

There will be a variety of activities for families to enjoy at this celebration of the Brodhead Creek and the watershed in which we live and play.

Stations throughout the expansive property of the club will be staffed by some of the area’s finest naturalists. While the event begins and ends at Brodhead Hunting and Fishing Club, several locations nearby will also be staffed by presenters eager to share their knowledge and love of the Brodhead watershed.

These “Ramble Stops” include Targa Falls on Paradise-Price Preserve, with a spectacular view of the only natural waterfall on Brodhead Creek; Stony Run, an “exceptional value” tributary of Brodhead Creek; beautiful Zimmer Wildlife Sanctuary; and many other naturally gorgeous sites.

Afterward, enjoy good food and conversation at the traditional after-Ramble party, from 4 to 5 p.m. at Brodhead Hunting and Fishing Club’s new clubhouse overlooking Brodhead Creek.

Suggested donation is $10 for members and $15 for nonmembers, with a $2 discount for pre-registration. Children under 12 participate for free.
