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. 
NEW 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.
