On Saturday June 19th from 1:00-4:00pm, the Wolverine CAG is co-sponsoring an event titled Paddle & Pints – Restoration of the Rogue.
During Paddle & Pints, attendees will first hear from Karen Vorce from the Michigan Dept. of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) on the status of the Rogue River PFAS cleanup. Following Karen’s update, AAA Livery Service will drop off attendees’ kayaks on Friske Avenue so everyone can kayak down the Rogue together, meeting at the Rockford dam. And last but not least, after paddling, attendees can meet up for pints at one of Rockford’s Green Leader businesses.
Registration is free, but there are fees involved for canoes and kayaks.

This event is also sponsored by LGROW, Rockford SusCom, and Rogue River Watershed Partners.
