Geocaching Adventure – Friday May 23: 5:00-7:00pm
Kayaking and Geocaching Adventure led by Sheree Lincoln. 2 Hour Kayaking Adventure geocaching kayak paddling adventure. Local geocaching enthusiastic Jim Chimner of Straits Area Geocachers Club will have set up hidden geocaches along the Indian River and possibly the Little Sturgeon River tributary (near Marina Park) for this special paddling event. There will be geocaches that can be reached from land so anyone who wishes to participate without kayaking still can! The Launch site for this event is DeVoe Beach on Burt Lake. Weather permitting we will be heading into the Indian River from Burt Lake and paddling down river to the confluence of the Indian River and the Little Sturgeon River (past the Straits Highway Bridges near Marina Park). If there is a lot of wind on the lake or snow in the parking lot we will proceed to an alternate launch site around the corner and head directly into the river. There will be at least 2 geocaches hidden for this event. After we find caches we will be paddling back up the Indian River to the launch site on DeVoe Beach on Burt Lake. If you are bringing your own kayak please meet at the launch site at 5:00 pm. If you are renting a kayak from BrassWind Landing Boat Rental then please meet at 6240 Mack Avenue, Indian River, MI 49749. EarthWeek special kayak rental fee is $15.00.
