Join us on this exciting paddle social with special guests joining us: Paul DeRolf, Fisheries Biologist and owner of Beautiful Bait blog and photography, and Kyle Quandt, Project Manager of the Cedar Creek Watershed Project with the St. Joseph River Watershed Initiative.

We will start this paddle on land with some fun facts about the diversity of fish and macroinvertebrates (the bugs) that live in the Cedar Creek and how they are used as a tool to assess water quality. Paul will have some specimens to look at on land and we may even get the chance to pick-up a net and wade out into the creek to see what we find.

Then we take off for a beautiful and relaxing paddle exploring two NE Indiana rivers: the Cedar Creek AND the St. Joseph River.

Come for just the water quality/fish talk or just the paddle or btter yet, join us for both!
