The Marquette Regional History Center Presents:
Paddling Marquette County
Saturday, August 29, 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.
With 83 miles of Lake Superior frontage, navigable rivers, and pristine inland lakes, Marquette County is a paddling sports destination. Sue Belanger, former Sea Kayak Adventure Guide and Instructor, will lead a canoe and kayak excursion on the Dead River. We will briefly discuss the historical perspective of the Dead River, an important waterway for Native Americans and early Marquette County settlers. Sue will share a natural history perspective of the river along the paddle. In addition to her watercraft expertise, Sue has experience leading Nature Conservancy Echo Tours and native plant foraging workshops.
This informal outing is limited to intermediate paddlers using their own boats. Register ahead at the History Center or by calling 906-226-3571. We have space for six single kayaks and two tandem canoes: 10 participants total. $15 per person.
