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:
Want to join us? Dahlem and GREAT partner twice a year: once to do a recreational paddle, and again at the end of the summer to do a Clean the Grand trash removal. If you’d like to come help clean up the Grand, it’s on Sept. 14. You can read about it and sign up here.
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).
