Canoeing and Kayaking in Michigan

PBS-featured author and life-long Michigan resident Doc Fletcher will ¬†present his 2013 canoeing and kayaking program, “Paddle Now, Chores Later” at the Rochester Hills Public Library on Tuesday, March 5th at 7 p.m. ¬†Among the rivers featured will be the Pere Marquette, the subject of Doc’s new book. The program will also focus on the U.P.’s Two Hearted River, a gorgeous stream that flows into Lake Superior, and how it was impacted by, and is recovering from, the third largest fire in Michigan’s history this past May and June. After the presentation, a free drawing will be held and one person will win a gift certificate good for a free canoe or kayak day trip. The use of the boats and drop-offs/pick-ups are donated by liveries (canoe/kayak rentals) in towns across Michigan. Canoe/kayak livery brochures and state maps will be made available to assist program attendees in planning river trips. Copies of his books on canoeing and kayaking in Michigan and Wisconsin will be available for purchase.
