Today, we celebrated the Grand Opening of our new Canoe Portage Rail. This project, generously funded by REI and supported by great volunteers, gives the Island Lake Recreation Area and Huron River Water Trail a great new resorce that will help paddlers access this incredible stretch of our Huron River. Thanks also to our great Michigan Department of Natural Resources staff, the Greater Brighton Area Chamber, and Alan Heavner of Heavner Canoe Rental for their support of the park and its users. Enjoy these pics of the grand opening and the rail in use. Also thank to the Crossroads Group Sierra Club for helping top host the event, as well as or trail hike preceding the event. Please spread the word about this great new resource! Please remember to #optoutside and get your daily dose of Vitamin N (Nature)!
