Historic Waterway Paddle Tour: Grindstone to LCO

In partnership with the Natural Resources Foundation Field Trips program, we are please to invite you to join us on Saturday, July 11 from 8am – noon.

Historic Waterway Paddle Tour: Grindstone to LCO.

Paddle into the past as we trace a historic waterway used by Native Americans, fur traders, and explorers years ago.  Join local historian, avid paddler, and Couderay Waters Regional Land Trust board member Tom Heinrich as he leads a tour of Grindstone Lake, Mud Lake, and Lac Courte Oreilles to the site of one of the original Ojibwe communities in the area.  We will discuss the work of the land trust and highlight properties held in conservation easements on LCO as we paddle past.  Explore the natural beauty, catch sight of eagles, loons & other wildlife as we paddle in the strokes of many who came before.  You must bring your own canoe/kayak.

Things to bring:  Canoe or kayak, paddle(s), life jackets, sun hat, sunscreen, water bottle.  Optional:  Snack/lunch, camera.

Registration is through the Natural Resources Foundation.

Maximum group size is 25.
