Huron River Paddlers
Huron River paddlers stop to enjoy a picnic.

Rivers are, once again, becoming a focal point for communities and a destination for tourism, boating, fishing and other types of recreation. In fact, paddle sports like canoeing and kayaking are one of the fastest growing sectors of the recreational industry, and fishing continues to enjoy a devoted following on the Huron. HRWC and its partners are taking steps to reconnect communities and individuals with the river through river-based recreation, called the Huron River Water Trail.

Join HRWC’s Elizabeth Riggs, Watershed Planner, as she talks about how the water trail will improve recreational access to the river; add interpretive, way-finding, and historical signage; link river communities; and build creative economic development opportunities.

The Water Trail has tremendous potential for becoming a new destination niche and for attracting tourism dollars to Oakland, Livingston, Monroe, Washtenaw and Wayne counties, and local communities from both residents and visitors. Don’t miss this chance to learn more about how this initiative is coming together.
