Join us and our partners, for a guided nature float on this beautiful section of the Cuyahoga River. Our program utilizes free canoe floats to showcase the special and unique characteristics of the state’s highest quality streams, Ohio’s Wild, Scenic, and Recreational Rivers. As such, we are pleased to participate in Triple Trails Fest, in Mantua, OH, to forge relationships with our community partners and promote our mission for the conservation of the Upper Cuyahoga River state-designated Scenic River.

The Ohio Scenic Rivers Program is a section within the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Natural Areas and Preserves (DNAP). The mission of the Ohio Scenic Rivers Program is to work cooperatively with local governments, businesses, landowners, non-profit organizations and other state and federal agencies to protect the aquatic resources and terrestrial communities dependent on healthy riparian habitats.
