Join us on a free, guided paddle trip along the Kalamazoo River!

This trip offers a unique opportunity to participate in Kanoe the Kazoo on a week night. This relatively short paddle trip will end at Verburg Park on Paterson St. (a public city park with free parking), but will stop at Arcadia Ales on the way so that folks who are interested in supporting SWMLC can stop to eat and “Drink One Down for Your Town”. Arcadia will match 50% of the day’s tap sales as a donation to the conservancy in support of our mission to protect great natural places in our region. Provide your own canoe or kayak — no rentals will be available.

Every pint makes a difference!

TRIP LENGTH: 1-2 hrs
