Back by Popular Demand...Lytle Creek League of Conservators/No Child Left Indoors Canoeing at Cowan Lake State Park August 6


(Blooming American lotus flowers at Cowan Lake)
Whether you are joining us again or this is your first time canoeing, welcome! Its all about reconnecting kids to nature.

Wednesday, August 6, Cowan Lake State Park Naturalist, Erin Shaw, and No Child Left Indoors volunteers will lead guided canoe tours of Cowan Lake to explore the beautiful Lotus Cove area of the park. Canoes and lifejackets will be provided. This activity is geared toward children ages 5-14 and will focus on safety and proper paddling techniques. This is a great opportunity to introduce children to the lifelong activity of canoeing at one of the Ohio’s most beautiful state parks.

Please note that parents or adult companions must stay with the children during the event. (And why would you not want to be part of the fun?)

We will meet at Cowan Lake's Campground, parking lot "B". The campground is located at 1750 Osborn Road. A volunteer at the new Nature Center (old campground office) will direct you to our starting point. We will do a 10:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. session. Families are encouraged to bring a lunch and afterwards enjoy one of Clinton County's natural treasures.

This program is FREE, but space is limited. Register HERE and be sure to note which session you plan to attend. For more information, call Lori Williams (937) 725-5756.
