 ACA Supports Establishment of Lake Eerie and Cuyahoga River Water Trails - 2018


The ACA wrote letters of support toward the creation of the Lake Eerie and Cuyahoga River Water Trails Networks. Establishing these important trail networks provides paddlers with opportunities to learn about the value of local ecology and understand connection to water resources. Designating access points and providing educational materials creates a paddling experience that is more accessible and helps build the next generation of water resource stewards by providing a platform for collaboration and the eventual implementation of strategies that enhance and restore the health of local waterways.
