Final agenda for Saturday's session.....I work closely with the folks at Riverside Kayak in
Trenton to promote the development of watertrails in lower Michigan. They have been
very involved in developing the Detroit Heritage River Water Trail and Lower Huron
River Water Trail. Anyway....since they will be at the Symposium, I've invited Patrick
VanDeHey, owner, to talk about 15-20 minutes on the role of the outfitter in promoting
water trails and getting people on the water and paddling. Should be a great addition to
the session! So to summarize the speakers....
Barbara Nelson-Jameson (National Park Service) - Intro to Water Trails and
what's happening around the state & country, Intro to Water Trail Planning
and Logical Lasting Launches
Cindy Burkhour, Access to Recreation - designing facilities for accessible
paddling with a focus on the accessible launch being developed by Great
Lakes Lift/EZ Dock
Patrick VanDeHey - Riverside Kayak - the role of the outfitter in
developing and promoting water trails
Session will probably last 1 and 1/2 hours
