The Black River is big enough to be free (usually) of obstacles and small enough to let you relax as you float through the woods and past the stream-filled ravines. Mark your calendars for this fun fall event . . . and please check back for developing details.
WHEN: Sunday, October 14
WHERE: Black River Preserve, Geneva Twp., Van Buren Co.
From M-43: At the traffic circle at Maple Grove Corners, take CR-689 north to the T-stop at 8th Ave. Turn right (east) on 8th Ave, and look for the preserve on the south side. If you get to 68th St, you’ve gone too far.
