1)Rick Schumaker invites any interested paddlers to go through the “challenging” portions of the local Susquehanna with him, in order to gain a familiarity with sections that we usually skip. 

2)Kevin Millar announced the Owego Rotary Club is sponsoring a public paddle in July, with support of the new business in Owego, Row ‘N Ride.

Dr. Peter Petokas gave a fine presentation on the Eastern Hellbender Salamander. Who knew what lurks below? Dr. Petokas invited our members to join him and his research team to help track hellbenders that have been released in the Unadilla River. We also took a break to take a field trip to the parking lot for a view of the Starlink satellite train. Amazing!
