Paddle the Rouge River with Friends of the Rouge this Fall
- Date: 10/07/2017
Oct 7 (Natural Rouge)
This fall there is an opportunity to join a group paddle on the Rouge River. The tour is being organized by Friends of the Rouge in conjunction with two local liveries.
On Saturday October 7, Friends of the Rouge partners with Heavner Canoe Rental to offer a trip that feels like an up north paddle. Following the Lower Branch within the City of Wayne, paddlers are surrounded by a surprisingly healthy forest with towering cottonwoods, several steep riverbanks and even a bit of whitewater to negotiate.
The tour is limited to experienced paddlers due to water quality concerns. To sign up for the Oct 7 paddle, contact FOTR at 313-792-9621 or firstname.lastname@example.org ($45 per canoe/$10 bring your own).
The Rouge River covers 466 square miles in three counties and 42 communities in the metropolitan Detroit area. Friends of the Rouge is a non-profit 501c3 organization dedicated to promoting restoration and stewardship of the Rouge River and is currently working to develop a Rouge River Water Trail.
