Grab your paddleboard, kayak or paddle craft of choice and join Paddle Antrim for an extra special community paddle. Paddle Antrim will be co-hosting this paddle with Grass River Natural Area to explore this special place. Grass River’s naturalist will be there to share the natural history of the river. This slow paddle is scheduled for 2 hours. The paddle will begin at Willow Day Park at 6:00 pm to check in and will launch promptly as a group at 6:15 pm.
Paddle Antrim encourages all ages and types of paddle crafts to join on the water for these slow paddles. This paddle will last approximately two hours on the water, is free, and no pre-registration is required. All paddlers must bring their own craft/boat, paddle, and pfd (life jacket). As with all Paddle Antrim events, pfds must be properly worn at all times. All ages are welcome but children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult out on the water.
