Here is another exploration opportunity…

FYI: Old Woman Creek Estuary has their Estuary Explorations 2017 bulletin printed. Within are numerous canoe tours of the estuary for the general public. All are free and the canoes, paddles and lifejackets are provided. In addition, a naturalist leads the group to provide interesting facts about the wetland, forests and beach. Scheduled canoe tours are set for Saturday mornings, 9am to 11am or Thursday evenings from 5 to 7pm. Also, paddlers with their own canoe or kayak can get a free permit at the visitor center to paddle the estuary on their own during usual operating times.

Swan Creek update

 

Today’s third annual “Swan Creek Fall Color kayak Tour” weather was just perfect, Especially since the date was chosen back in January!!

We had a total of 37 paddlers, of those, 10 came using Toledo Metroparks kayaks !

We also had 2 that came with their brand new kayaks they picked up the other day and were anxious to try them out!

Thank you for everyone’s help in launching and getting everyone out onto the dock- takes awhile for that many kayaks!

Looking forward to the third annual “Swam Creek Spring into Green Kayak Tour” in late May!!

Swan Creek Landing Fall Kayak Color Tour

 

Don’t forget that this Sunday, October 23 is our third annual “Swan Creek Landing Fall Color Kayak Tour”!

Starting at 11am we will start launching, with Toledo Metroparks launching at 11:30.

Come on down to enjoy what Toledo doesn’t want anyone else to know about- the beautifully canopy covered Swan Creek, that flows right through the heart of Toledo!
It’s about a 2-3 hour leisurely paddle without the hustle and bustle of the city high above the banks!

Toledo Metroparks will again have kayaks for Sunday’s event, but with reservation and a $30 fee ($24 if member) by Friday October 21st on line.

Currently only 2 reservations have been made, the will cancel bringing kayaks if the don’t have at least 6 reservations by Friday! So if you’re thinking of going because you don’t have a kayak or want to try one of their 12-14′ kayaks, please do not forget to make the reservation !
Or bring a friend along that doesn’t have a kayak !!

Just a traffic note:
I-75 north bound will be closed from I-475 down town to I-280 this weekend!
So those of you coming in to Swan Creek via I-75 might encounter traffic backup or slow downs!
