Self-guided fall float trips on the Blanchard River are available on Saturdays and Sundays from September 7 through October 27 starting at 1 PM. Float trips begin and end at Zonta Landing at Riverside Park. Canoeists and kayakers have the opportunity to enjoy the late summer green and early autumn brilliance along the Blanchard River as they paddle upstream past the Country Club’s golf course, Eastpoint Area, and Vogelsong Conservation Area to the State Route 568/Sandusky Street Bridge and back. The trip takes approximately 2 hours. Trips will be cancelled in the event of flooding, rain, thunder and lightning, and strong wind.

Wear tennis shoes that can get wet. Dress and plan accordingly for the weather. Wool, fleece, and fast- drying clothes are recommended in autumn when air and water temperatures are cold. Alcohol is not permitted. Canoes, kayaks, personal floatation devices, and paddles will be provided. The weight limit for a kayak is 275 pounds. Specify watercraft preference when registering.
The fee is $10 per person with a signed Assumption of Risk/Liability Release/Waiver of all Claims form and/ or a Parental Consent form if applicable. Forms will be available at Zonta Landing prior to the trip.
