Paddle among the islands and along the scenic river shoreline as the Huron makes its way through Oakwoods Metropark in New Boston. Oakwoods is known for its mature woodlands, tallgrass prairies, and slow-moving backwaters with plentiful natural habitat for birds and waterfowl. You can expect to encounter a variety of bird species on this out and back paddle and could see bald eagles or ospreys, ducks, muskrats, swans, mink, or white-tailed deer. While the paddle trip is free, there will be a $10 per vehicle fee to enter the metropark, unless you have an annual pass.
Bring your own watercraft for an “out and back” paddle trip exploring a unique section of the Huron River National Water Trail. HRWC staff and local experts will give a short talk on the river’s ecology, history and features. Exact location of each meet up will be sent to participants after they register.
Event is hosted by HRWC and the Oakwoods Metropark.
