8957 Kasson St., Cedar
Sunday, June 16, 11:00 a.m.
Join the Grand Traverse Humanists as we paddle the beautiful Cedar River, aka Victoria Creek! This is an easy trip appropriate for all skill levels. You can use a kayak or canoe, but not tubes (they’re too slow). Paddle boards would be acceptable, but you may not be able to keep up with those with kayaks/canoes.
The river has no current, so this will be an out and back paddle. No shuttle required, as we’ll paddle out and return the same way. It will be up to participants to decide how far they want to go. If you paddle all the way to Lake Leelanau and back, it’s a 7.2 mile round trip. Those who make it to Lake Leelanau will be able to take a short side trip to a “secret” lake!
This river runs through the Leelanau Conservancy’s Cedar River Preserve. More info here: https://leelanauconservancy.org/naturalarea/cedar-river-natural-area/
We’ll meet at the launch site at 11 AM. The launch is in Cedar in a parking lot off Kasson St. (the main street going through Cedar). On the north side of the river, turn into the parking lot with the American Waste recycling dumpsters. More info at our Facebook event posting: https://www.facebook.com/events/2340724672808344/
Email Linnaea at firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP. Hope to see you on the river!
