Enjoy a unique perspective of our watershed! 3rd Annual Oradell Reservoir Challenge.

The Hackensack River is a 45 mile long river that rises in Rockland County by West Haverstraw and flows into the Deforest Lake reservoir. The river then flows into the Lake Tappan Reservoir (Old Tappan), runs through Harrington Park and into the Oradell Reservoir and eventually empties into Newark Bay.  The mission of the Hackensack Riverkeeper is to protect, preserve and restore the Hackensack River watershed.

 On Sat June 4th the 3rd Reservoir Challenge will take place at the Oradell Reservoir, Lake Shore Drive, Oradell, NJ from 9am-5pm. (Rain date Sun 5th). A partial list of events includes: 5K and 10K kayak races, birding walks, the famed Mayors Cup, a Whole Foods BBQ lunch (available for purchase) accompanied by live music and two leisurely guided paddles on the reservoir. Pre-registration is required for races and is strongly encouraged for guided paddles. Limited day of event registration will be available. http://www.hackensackriverkeeper.org/Reservoir_Challenge_2011.htm
