Grass River Natural Area Community Paddle
June 3 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Grab your paddleboard, kayak or paddle craft of choice and join Paddle Antrim for an extra special community paddle. We are co-hosting this paddle with Grass River Natural Area to explore this special place. Grass River’s naturalist will be there to share the natural history of the river. This slow paddle is scheduled for 2 hours. We will begin at Willow Day Park at 6:30 pm to check in and we will launch promptly as a group at 6:45 pm.
Paddle Antrim encourage all ages and types of paddle crafts to join us on the water for these slow paddles. This paddle will last approximately two hours on the water, is free, and no pre-registration is required. All paddlers must bring their own craft/boat, paddle, and pfd (life jacket). As with all Paddle Antrim events, pfds must be properly worn at all times. All ages are welcome but children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult out on the water.
DIRECTIONS TO WILLOW DAY PARK: From Bellaire, drive south on M-88 just over 2 miles to Brake Rd. Turn right on Brake Rd and drive about one mile to White Birch Lane. Turn right on White Birch Lane (it does say private road but please continue) and Willow Day Park is almost immediately on the left.
