    Paddle and Cook Out with DeVries

    Join the Friends of the Shiawassee River and DeVries Nature Conservancy as we enjoy the Shiawassee River! This short paddle will launch from Harmon Patridge Park kayak/canoe launch site at 10 am and travel to the DeVries Nature Conservancy, where we will have a fabulous cookout.  This is a great opportunity for families or beginning kayaker/canoers and all you need to bring for the cookout is your appetite.
