DON'T MISS

THE RALLY TO STOP PENNEAST

IN RIEGELSVILLE

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 8TH  

10 AM

Join us once again, in solidarity against the proposed PennEast Pipeline and the destruction to the Delaware River at a new spectacular location, this time in Pennsylvania. Invite your friends, family and neighbors!

We will be walking along the beautiful Delaware River canal towpath for a two mile trek through Riegelsville, PA. See the actual spot where PennEast wants to burrow under our historic canal and Delaware River. This historic area near Durham Furnace by Riegelsville was a part of the Revolutionary War. George Washington requisitioned boats for the famous crossing of the Delaware.

 

The Lenape Nation will be joining us, in our love for this area and the Delaware River, and will be doing a special blessing and drum circle.
