The Pere Marquette is a designated National Scenic River that flows from near Baldwin, MI to Ludington where it enters Lake Michigan.  We will be paddling a stretch of this beautiful river from the Bowman Bridge to the Upper Branch Bridge through the Manistee National Forest.  This river has faster current that can lead to some tricky paddling so it is not recommended for first time paddlers.  The nature center provides a kayak, paddle, life jacket and transportation.  You provide snacks, water bottle, hat and sunscreen and a lunch packed in a waterproof container. (No coolers please) Meet at DeGraaf by 8 a.m. FEE: $39/$31 for Friends of DeGraaf.  Please call to register.
