Attendees at a Recent Paddle Series Event
Attendees at a Recent Paddle Series Event

With summer upon us (to some degree), LIAA staff was able to get out on the water and participate in the Blueways of St. Clair Summer Paddle Series. The paddle series features group paddles (with local citizens) in six unique water trails/communities in St. Clair County. Each paddle includes interpretive discussions with a local historian and naturalist. Each paddle concludes with a dinner at a local restaurant. The pilot paddle series is part of a larger marketing and promotion program that LIAA helped develop in partnership with St. Clair County Metropolitan Planning Commission to promote the Blueways of St. Clair system of water trails and the Trail Town communities that support them. The paddler series, as well as the development of a paddling guidebook and strategic plan for the Blueways are part of a larger planning effort that was supported by a generous grant from Michigan’s Coastal Zone Management (CZM) Program.
