RED BANK, NJ: It has sold out for the last 3 years, so don’t let your kids/grandkids get left behind.

The Navesink Maritime Heritage Association (NMHA) has opened up their River Rangers program that put kids on colorful 15-foot wooden canoes for five mornings of exploring the Navesink and Swimming Rivers. 

The canoes allow for social distancing and a chance to get the youngsters outdoors for a healthy open-air adventure in July or August.
