MNA members and supporters are encouraged to join Woods and Water Ecotours on a guided paddling excursion through the scenic waters and shorelines of the Les Cheneaux Island archipelago. Tours will be offered on June 27 as well as on later dates in July and August.
Participants will paddle the protected waters of this 36 island archipelago near Cedarville, exploring inner bays, beautiful boreal forests, wildflowers and freshwater marshes. The area has long been a popular summer escape for paddlers, with sailboats and summer cottages around the islands.
A professional guide will discuss wildlife and varying habitats, as well as the history of the area, which includes the “grandfather of conservation” Aldo Leopold’s childhood cottage. The cost of the event is $75 for members and $95 for nonmembers. All gear, equipment and lunch are included, and no experience is necessary!
