RIVERFEST CANOE FLOAT - OLENTANGY RIVER

Saturday, June 14, 2014
10AM
Olentangy River at Tuttle Park
240 W Oakland Ave
Columbus, OH 43201

Join MORPC, Hero USA, FLOW, ODNR, REI and Columbus Recreation and Parks Department for the kick off of Riverfest On Tour! as we paddle the newly restored Olentangy River from Tuttle Park to Downtown. Participants will experience the free flowing waters of the river after the removal of the 5th Avenue Dam. We will make a couple of stops along the paddle to examine the new riverbanks and the stormwater wetlands that have been created to help clean up the water running off the surrounding neighborhoods. Come learn how you can help protect this awesome resource in the heart of the city and experience the Olentangy Water Trail.

Riverfest On Tour! aims to educate the public about the vital role waterways play in the region. Riverfest activities are free of charge. For more information visit our Riverfest event page
