Take a relaxing and informative canoe trip in Bass Lake Preserve during this local Paddle Ohio event, newly created by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ Division of Watercraft to encourage people to paddle as many state-designated wild, scenic and recreational rivers and water trails as possible.

Paddle Ohio will take place on Sunday, June 21 from 1 to 3 p.m. at Bass Lake Preserve, Boat Launch Area, 11445 Lakeview Drive, Munson Twp.

Chagrin Scenic River protects Spring Brook, a tributary of Bass Lake, which has continually held a population of the Ohio native brook trout since the last ice age. The stream provides the brook trout with a neat optimal habitat.

While enjoying the scenic lake, participants can also count this toward the four paddles they must take before November to earn a free collectible pin; paddle all 20 scenic rivers and water trails in the state to receive a certificate signed by the chief of the Division of Watercraft!

Registration is required for this paddle. You can register by visiting the Geauga Park District website or calling 440-286-9416. Ages 12+ with adult only.

Paddle Ohio also aspires to raise awareness of the importance of protecting Ohio’s highest quality rivers and streams. Learn more about the program at paddle.ohiodnr.gov.

June is also “Connect with Activity” month at Geauga Park District – make this unique trip one of your connections!
