Did you know that Trap Pond State Park contains the northernmost naturally occurring stand of Baldcypress in the U.S.? Join us for a kayaking tour to learn about its ecology and history. Along the way, we will stop to read and discuss literary pieces connected to the surrounding environment.
Registration required and spaces are limited. Please contact the Trap Pond State Park Nature Center at 302-875-5163 to register.

The event is free, but participants must pay park entry fee ($4 in state, $8 out of state). If attendees purchase tickets to the Beer, Wine, and Spirits Fest (starting immediately after the Canoe and Chat), park entry is included in the ticket price.

If possible, please bring your own canoe/kayak, paddle, and life vest.  Otherwise, kayaks or canoes, paddles, and life vests will be supplied as long as available.  Please be sure to bring sun screen, a hat, water, bug spray, and to wear the appropriate clothing.

About Environmental Humanities

Program Description

Many of us think the word "environment" exists in strictly scientific terms, from climate science to land management to agriculture to food. However, all of these issues occupy a space between science and the humanities. All of them are debated and discussed by writers, historians, philosophers, and political figures, in addition to chemists, biologists, and physicists. All of them intersect with the other crucial issues of American life: health, culture, religion, economics.  Environmental Humanities opens these discussions for all of us, providing a framework for these important conversations. Check this page (left panel) for upcoming events.  You can also visit our resources page for books, articles, documentaries, and more related to Environmental Humanities.
