Paddle Ohio launches 2018 Summer Paddling Events

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR), Division of Parks and Watercraft is offering a series of Paddle Ohio canoe floats this summer to promote paddling on Ohio’s state-designated wild, scenic and recreational rivers, water trails and select state park lakes.

The Paddle Ohio program rewards individuals with a commemorative pin each time they paddle four different Ohio wild, scenic and recreational rivers, water trails or select state park lakes. To participate in the program, paddlers submit information about their paddling trips on the Paddle Ohio registration form at paddle.ohiodnr.gov/getyourpin. ODNR will mail pins to qualifying individuals at the end of the 2018 boating season. Pins are available for paddlers who paddle four, eight, 12, 16 or up to a maximum of 20 different segments of designated Paddle Ohio waters.

Although folks are encouraged to paddle at their convenience, several scheduled events are planned throughout the summer, including floats on Little Beaver Creek State and National Wild and Scenic River, the Little Miami State and National Scenic River and the Maumee State Scenic River. For more information about the events, including registration and possible time changes or float cancellations, visit paddle.ohiodnr.gov/
