Paddling excusion planned

Michigan Audubon will lead a canoe/kayak float on Barry County's Fish Lake, July 11th. Participants should meet at the Fish Lake Public Access on Guernsey Lake Road at 7:45 am. The paddle distance is approximately 2 miles. We expect to see herons and various waterfowl species, along with Osprey, Marsh Wren, Common Yellowthroat, as well as many species of turtles, frogs, snakes, and mammals. Paddlers need to provide your own canoe or kayak and associated gear. Personal Flotation Devices (PFDs) are mandatory. Registration is required and costs $15/members, $25/non-members. Contact Wendy Tatar at wendy@michiganaudubon.org or 517-886-9144. The trip is limited to 10 vessels. See you on the water!
