Huron River Watershed Council Paddle

. August 21, 2014.

Before the cold sets in, enjoy the quiet waters of the Huron River one last time. Expert paddlers Ron Sell, Barry Lonik and the HRWC staff guide a canoe and kayak trip from Hudson Mills to the Dexter-Huron Metropark (and biking back), including a discussion of the river’s water ecology and history. Shuttle transportation is provided. Bring your own watercraft, bike, gear, food and water. Every paddler must wear a flotation device–bring that, too. Exact location of the put-in will be sent to participants upon registration.

10am. $25 HRWC members; $35 non-members. hrwc.ejoinme.org
