River Day is an opportunity to spend some time along the Cuyahoga and its system of wetlands, tributaries and, of course, Lake Erie, where the river ends.
There will be fun festivities, peaceful paddling, and lots to do along the river, up in its tributaries and along the lakefront. Get to know the river and its watershed up close and personal. Become a steward. Be river-literate. Be a river lover.
This River Day 2018, and throughout the year, volunteers will be out and about Capturing the Cuyahoga – collecting your stories of the Cuyahoga River. Whether those start with "When I was a kid..." or "I love to paddle the quiet parts...," or even "I thought it still caught on fire," we'll want to hear them.
We'll also be gathering pictures, photos, and artwork to include in a big book about the Cuyahoga. That's you with the fish you caught, or you paddling your canoe or kayak or paddleboard, or you aboard your boat, or ________ (fill in the blank!)
We're gearing up for the big 50th Anniversary (of the fire on the river, of course) in 2019, when we'll celebrate the amazing comeback of our wonderful waterway.
Come be part of the River Day story. Clear trash, plant native species, remove invasives, and learn history and natural science. Canoe, kayak, bike, hike, watch wildlife or simply enjoy the view – come help us celebrate and protect our Crooked River!
