June 03, 2007

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. -The 2007 Potomac River Rambles Series will begin Wednesday with a four-day voyage from National Conservation Training Center near Shepherdstown, W.Va., to Tarara Winery near Leesburg, Va. The group will assemble in Shepherdstown Wednesday evening and will arrive at Tarara Winery on Sunday afternoon, June 10. Ramblers can tour and taste at the winery when the Ramble ends.

The ramble will travel through part of the river, and includes some whitewater in the Harpers Ferry, W.Va., area. The group also will meet up with members from the Shenandoah Sojourn trip in Harpers Ferry, and take in the Potomac River Family Festival at the campsite in Brunswick, Md. Ramblers will learn about the river's ecology, culture, and history during lunch and evening presentations. Experiences during the Ramble can include water quality monitoring, streamside lectures on fisheries and stream assessment, cleanups, informal get-togethers with local officials or stream groups, cleanups, and living history presentations.
