Participants in the YMCA's Youth Volunteer Corps and their counselors at the Superior portage

We’re grateful for the help of the dedicated group from the YMCA Ann Arbor’s Youth Volunteer Corps who joined HRWC staff to clear a canoe and kayak portage trail. Fourteen hard-working and good-natured youth and their counselors grabbed work gloves and loppers to open up the portage trail at the Superior dam on the Huron River. We were impressed with their tenacity and tolerance for mosquito bites.

We anticipate big changes over the next few months at this work site as a new trail is created, better signage is installed, and the boat landing and launch are improved. Until then, paddlers on the Huron need to be able to portage their boats and the work of the Youth Volunteer Corps will make that possible.
