WCPD PCSCanoeScouting6 4 1835There are plenty of opportunities for paddling the Maumee River this summer!  Our partners at Toledo Metroparks and Wood County Parks are hosting events where you can explore all that the Mighty Maumee has to offer:

  • Toledo Metroparks Trail Challenge – Trail & Paddle program. This challenge will run until June 19th of 2019, so there is plenty of time to get your mileage in.  Set a goal of 50, 100, or 150 hiking miles or 30, 80, or 100 paddling miles.  You can register online or at Wildwood Preserve’s Visitor Center. Participants will receive a t-shirt, Facebook group entry, special event invitations, and a hiking stick with a badge. This is a great way to Get Outside Yourself on the newly designated Maumee River Water Trail and explore the phenomenal Toledo Metroparks trail system.
  • Wood County Parks is hosting a Canoeing with Crayfish program on the Maumee River with Naturalists and ODNR stream scientists on Saturday, July 21st.  Paddlers will meet at the Weirs Rapids Access (21095 Range Line Road in Bowling Green) at 9am for a three-hour paddle. Learn how to evaluate water quality by studying macro and micro-invertebrates.  Liability forms are required and there is an age limit to be in the canoe.  For more information about this program and to register: click here.
