OWOSSO — Thanks to the efforts of many volunteers and local
organizations, the Friends of the Shiawassee River is nearing completion
of five canoe launches and landings on the Shiawassee River.
The Friends acquired a $13,200 matching grant from the Saginaw Bay
Watershed Initiative Network. The funding enabled the organization to
construct the launches, install directional signs, and publish a new
canoeing and kayaking guide.
launches are at
-- Geeck Road Park near Bancroft,
-- Lytle Road Park
east of Corunna,
-- Voight Loop Trail Park in downtown Owosso,
Henderson Road Park;
-- a dock/landing is under development in
cooperation with DeVries Nature Conservancy.
Looking forward to getting a copy of that new paddling guide.
