Saturday, October 3rd, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.  Join Genesee RiverWatch and the Genesee Waterways Center for a guided paddle on the Lower Genesee.  We will leave from, and return to, the brand new, ADA compliant, canoe and kayak dock at the foot of Petten Street.  Enjoy a rare, water-level view of Turning Point Park and Rochester’s unique “wilderness in the city” hidden in the gorge of the Genesee.  Guides will describe the history of the Lower Genesee, including its role as a lake port and terminus of the Underground Railway.  Cost is $25.00 per person and includes canoe or kayak rental. Maximum two adults per canoe. All children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.  Pre-registration is required: http://geneseewaterways.org/rentals_offer.htm. Call 585-820-8860 with questions. Meet at the parking lot at the river end of Petten Street off Lake Avenue.
