PADDLE THE ROUGE IS A FUND AND AWARENESS-RAISING EVENT IN SUPPORT OF CPAWS WILDLANDS LEAGUE.
You’ve hiked its trails, or fished this river, discovered a personal passion exploring the area or you have a favorite tree to return to each year. Or maybe you’re a new friend of the Rouge.
THIS YEAR SEE ROUGE PARK FROM A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE: FROM THE SEAT OF CANOE OR KAYAK WITH A PADDLE IN YOUR HAND.
Enjoy the slow moving, beautiful Rouge River as it meanders through Carolinian forest and marsh. Keep your eyes open for beautiful birds, like the Great Blue Heron.
The Rouge is the last connected area of undeveloped land between the Oak Ridges Moraine and Lake Ontario. With 8 million people on its doorstep and so much beauty to explore, it’s important that the area is properly protected for future generations to learn from and enjoy.
