Weekend Planner_July11

This weekend is going to have decent weather, cooler (high 60's) in the mornings but a bit hot in the afternoon (almost 90 on Sunday) making for a great opportunity to get out and do some early morning outdoor activities and some water activities in the afternoon.
I have been looking at some places to Kayak or canoe this weekend. Piermont NY has a little place called Paradise Canoe and Kayak right next to a playground and Tallman State park. It has reasonable prices starting at $15/hr. Piermont is also a great town, right on the Hudson River it offers some great views of the Water and the Tappan Zee Bridge. The main street is lined with shops, cafes, and restaurants and on Sunday there is a Farmers Market. The main shopping center has a bike and Kayak shop, an old fashioned style ice cream shop, and a Gazebo (great for an afternoon picnic or taking a rest).
For a easy to moderate hike check out the Tenafly Nature Center.

This past weekend I went to Ringwood State Park and was somewhat disappointed. It may have been because it was a holiday weekend but it was a bit hectic, less friendly, and there was quite a bit of litter on the beach. Definitely not what I have come to expect or experience from Ringwood in the past. (I still think it is a great place to Bike)
Some other State Parks to check out are
WayWayanda with Barrett Farm Historic Site, Trails, Camping, Fishing,Picnic tables, Boating/canoeing: (electric motors only) boat rentals, canoe rentals, Swimming and Playground

Stephens State Park has Interpretive Nature Programs with:
Saturday, July 12 ANIMAL HOMES WALK 1:00 P.M. Observe signs of animals. Create animal tracks.
BIRDING WITH CHILDREN 2:30 P.M. Learn to identify resident birds. Learn about the Bald Eagle.
OWLS: NIGHT HUNTERS 1:00 P.M. - 3:30 P.M. Owls as birds of prey. Dissect an owl pellet and find out what he had for lunch.

For a Beach Experience that is a little more remote check out Island Beach with
Miles of sand dunes and white sandy beaches offer habitat to maritime plants and diverse wildlife that is almost the same as it was thousands of years ago. Island Beach contains outstanding examples of plant communities such as primary dunes, thicket, freshwater wetlands, maritime forest and tidal marshes. The state's largest osprey colony, as well as peregrine falcons, wading birds, shorebirds, waterfowl and migrating songbirds, are found here. Island Beach is nationally known as a unique resource with over 400 plants identified, including the largest expanses of beach heather in New Jersey.
You can still hit the boardwalk at night at either Seaside Heights or Pt. Pleasant; Island Beach is right between both beach destinations.
