THE STORY:

Ryan Deering Nat Gray wrote -

The Charity

The Watershed Center has a 20 year history of protecting and preserving Grand Traverse Bay and its 1,000-square-mile watershed through on-the-ground projects, public education and advocacy.

You can protect the quality of water in the Grand Traverse Bay watershed, right now, with your gift to The Watershed Center. Each generous donation allows their dedicated staff to be the eyes, ears and voice for clean water in Grand Traverse Bay.   As the Grand Traverse area experiences growth and change, the Watershed Center is committed to responding immediately to matters that threaten the health of the Bay.

The Segment

Traverse City to Charlevoix is certain to be one of the most exciting segments of the relay.   We anticipate a great turn out of paddlers and what better way to escape the Cherry Festival crowds than to seek refuge on the water!  We plan to design this segment with lots of accessible paddle legs to maximize participation.   We can’t name names just yet, but we also anticipate at least couple of well known celebrities to join the fun.   If you have ever dreamed of paddling the length of the peninsula or from one bay to the next, this is your chance and of course, all for an amazing cause!
