Schuylkill Canal Association Hosting Two Events This Sunday

On Sunday, May 16th, the Schuylkill Canal Association will be holding two events:
SCA Wildflower Walk
Join us for the Wildflower Walk on Sunday, May 16th, starting at 1 – 1:15 PM at Lock 60 in Mont Clare. Wear sturdy shoes to hike along the trails along the river’s edge and the ravine trails as an expert guide, Steve Wright, points out the wildflowers growing on the hillside. Afterwards come into the Locktender’s House for some light refreshments and a brief tour.


Port Providence Paddle Guided 5-Mile Loop Paddle
Beginning no later than 1:15 PM starting at the Fitzwater Station in Port Providence. Paddle upstream in the canal to Lock 60, get out of the canal and come over to the Locktender’s House for a brief tour and some light refreshments. Put your boat in the River and paddle 2.5-miles downstream to the portage, portage back to the canal and end your paddle at the Fitzwater Station. John Pearson will be your guide for the afternoon; he can provide you with some of the interesting stories and sights and scenes along the river and canal.

Bring along your own boat, with all the necessary safety equipment, or rent one from the Port Providence Paddle, all safety equipment included. If you do rent – remember 20% of the rental fee will be donated back to the Schuylkill Canal Association.

Local Business Spotlight: G Lodge Restaurant

The G Lodge Restaurant is our most recent Local Business Spotlight. Located just a couple of miles from downtown to Phoenixville, the G Lodge has been a go to spot for breakfast and lunch for over 34 years. It was even featured in M.Night Shyamalan's 'The Happening'. The following is from RetroRoadmap.com:

If you’ve just visited Valley Forge National Park you may still be in the Colonial-era headspace, so why not continue in that vein by breakfast/lunching at the G Lodge? The inside of this unassuming roadside eatery (attached to an auto repair shop) echoes the log cabin structures of adjacent national park...just not as drafty.

Daily specials are listed above the counter, and there’s a lot on the menu as well. My eyes to always be bigger than my stomach here, though I’ve never sprung for the G-Buster special. Unlike many diner fans I am not a fan of breakfast homefries so I love that they have potato patties (deep fried!) as an option.
