We will ride the Kalamazoo River Valley Trail to the starting point of our river trip. Paddle together down the Kalamazoo River with naturalists, river experts, and lifeguards through KNC natural areas, past heron rookeries and an eagle’s nest before breaking for lunch on the KNC River Deck.  Supported by the KRWC and KNC.

All participants will need their own bike for this event.  Start time and instructions will be shared with registered guests. Donations are welcome. Help us support events like this in the future.
