Taken Directly from the Mahoning River Consortium Newsletter and Website:

Special June Event: “31-mile Riverside Picnic Party”
When: June 12, 2010 (sunup to sundown).
Where: All along the Mahoning River!
What: The idea of this event is to get as many families, groups, and individuals of the Mahoning Valley as possible to picnic somewhere, anywhere, along the river on this day. The goal of the MRC’s is to get folks to see the beauty of the river, so they will want that beauty embellished by the cleaning of pollutants from the river bed. We would like canoers, kayakers and motor boaters to cruise the river that day; and hikers and runners to cruise the shoreline. We picked June 12 because that is the second ‘National Get Outdoors Day.’

  1. Mahoning River has really picturesque views. I have been there in year 2008 with my family and we did kayaking that was such breathtaking family tour. I’m really glad to find this info and maybe make some changes in our summer trip plan. Thanks for sharing!

    Best Regards,
