HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. - The Northern Kentucky University Center for Environmental Education will partner with Vision 2015 and the Covington Neighborhoods, Parks and Recreation Department to host a guided river tour of the Licking River on June 30 at 9 a.m.
The tour, called "Rediscovering the Licking River," is a tour to help educate the public on the importance of two local initiatives. The Licking River Watershed is an organization that works to protect, improve and restore the waters for the Licking River basin by promoting water quality monitoring, public education and citizen action. The Licking River Greenway is an effort to create an urban greenway from the mouth of the Licking River to the I-275 loop.
The seven-mile tour will begin at Knotty Pine of the Bayou (6302 Licking Pike in Cold Spring) and conclude with a celebration at the Covington Landing.
The cost per participant is $20 and proceeds will benefit the NKU Center for Environmental Education's K-12 and community programs. Awards and prizes will be announced at the celebration ceremony along with raffles and educational booths, which are available for sponsorships.
