BENEFITING: Alliance for the Great Lakes

EVENT: Paddle Relay Around Lower Michigan

EVENT DATE: Aug 23, 2015

Lexington Michigan

THE STORY:

The Charity

The Alliance is the oldest Great Lakes organization devoted 100 percent to the lakes. Our professional staff works with scientists, policymakers, businesses, community groups and everyday citizens to protect and restore the world’s largest surface freshwater resource.

From forging forward-looking Great Lakes policies to promoting Great Lakes education to on-the-ground efforts to improve thousands of miles of Great Lakes shoreline, we’ve been out front and behind the scenes caring for the lakes since 1970.

The Segment

This is the home stretch of the relay! Lexington to Detroit has the most varied paddling opportunities of any segment of the event, passing through the southern end of Lake Huron, the St Clair River, Lake St Clair and finally, entering back into the Detroit River to end at Belle Isle for a grand finish.   We’ll stop at the Fort Gratiot Lighthouse before passing under the massive Blue Water Bridge that joins the US and Canada at Port Huron. The St Clair River is 40 miles long and empties into a vast delta known as the St Clair flats at the west side of Lake St Clair. You’re sure to see every form of water craft on this leg from pleasure cruisers and sailing vessels to freighters as they make their way between Detroit and the more northern ports.   We may hug tight to the northern shore of Anchor Bay or, if conditions are right, we may make the 5 mile crossing to St Clair Metro Park with a chase boat or two before heading south past Grosse Point to the final take-out on Belle Isle. We would like to have has many paddlers as possible join us for the closing legs of this amazing event and join in the party at the end. Hope to see you for the big finish!
