Paddling the Grand: GREAT & Dahlem

On Sunday, June 9, Dahlem and GREAT (the Grand River Environmental Action Team) partnered to paddle the Grand River from Vandercook Lake to Ella Sharp Park.  We started off with a picnic at Vandercook and after the eats the boats headed out.  We had a record 92 people in attendance!  Enjoy the view along the way:

GREAT does a number of paddles through the spring and into the fall.  If you don’t have a boat, that’s okay – they have canoes, kayaks, paddles and PFDs you can borrow…at no charge!  Check out their website (see above link).
