Event description

Description

The Flint River Flotilla scheduled to take place on Saturday, August 5 will be postponed until 2018. After the practice float last week, we decided to postpone the event due to construction work being done upstream from where the float takes place. In lieu of taking part of the Flotilla, the public is encouraged to participate in paddles scheduled along other portions of the river through the Flint River Watershed Coalition. http://flintriver.org/blog/programs/frwcs-paddles/ for more information.

We have worked with our sponsors to secure funding for a paddlers’ landing at the ending point for the Flotilla. Anyone who has participated in the Flotilla knows what a great asset this landing will be to create easier access in and out of the river in Mott Park.

The landing will be located inside Mott Park off Sunset and Ballenger Highway. The FRCA is coordinating with the City of Flint and with the Mott Park Recreation Area Board to move forward with the project. The goal is to begin work on the landing this fall. Sponsors to date for the project include General Motors, Hurley Medical Center, ROWE Professional Services Company and Diplomat Pharmacy.

As an alternative to participating in the Flint River Flotilla this year, the FRCA is encouraging individuals to register for paddles with the Flint River Watershed Coalition (FRWC) which are outside the area of the Consumers Energy Work. The cost for the paddles range from $10 to $25 per person and pre-registration is required. Anyone interested in registering for one should visit: http://flintriver.org/blog/programs/frwcs-paddles/ for more information.

===========> Anyone who has already registered for the Flotilla will be contacted by the FRWC regarding an alternative paddle. If one of those options does not work out for someone they will be issued a full refund.
