The Friends of Glacial Heritage Area’s Volunteer Paddle Corps is leading a free group paddle trip on Red Cedar Lake Saturday, May 16.
Starting and ending at Brosig Lane Launch Site off Highway 12, located just east of Cambridge (look for the GHA Paddle Corps sign), paddlers will tour the State Natural Area for about two hours, enjoying spring migration and other wildlife. The launch site is number 13 on the GHA Watertrails Map (see below to get your copy). Meeting time is 9 a.m., and interested paddlers are encouraged to RSVP by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please bring your own canoe or kayak and safety gear. There will be no rental boats, but we will have volunteer craft available for use. To reserve a boat, RSVP at email@example.com by Wednesday, May 13.
The Friends, along with and under the guidance of Jefferson County Parks Department, has organized the Volunteer Paddle Corps with the main purpose of debris and garbage removal from Glacial Heritage Area paddle waterways. Members of the Corps also organize group paddles throughout the season. Please contact Clare at firstname.lastname@example.org or Kevin at email@example.com to be added to the volunteer list. Donations are welcome to support these efforts.
