*CANCELLED* Jane’s PADDLE: Paddling past to present
By Adrianne Nascimento, Jenny Foster
Join us for a Jane's Walk Paddle!
Rivers are this land's original highways, and the Rouge River is no exception. Join us as we explore how settlements along the Rouge, and its use as a trading and northern Great Lakes access route, shaped the beginnings of the city we know today as Toronto. We will paddle the river, learn about local flora and fauna, and discuss how land use is shaped over time.
This is a Bring Your Own Boat event, meeting at the Rouge Beach parking lot. Non-motorized boats only - think Kayaks, canoes and paddleboards. Personal Flotation and other relevant safety equipment are MANDATORY and your personal responsibility. Paddle at your own risk, while at all times following local regulations for water safety and current weather and water conditions. Your safety is your responsibility.
** Parking is limited and there has been recent construction in the area. Please arrive early to give yourself time to walk in, if necessary, and be prepared to launch your vessel on time.
