About the event

Join us on Monday July 17th from 5:30-7:30 pm at the Milton Township Waterfront Park. The event is free but pre-registration with our cohost, Paddle Antrim, is required.

Michigan’s lakes and rivers often bustle with a variety of paddlers. Kayak, canoe, and stand-up paddleboard users traverse the state’s many waterways in search of tranquility or adventure. Michigan Sea Grant is enlisting paddlers in a fight to protect the waters they love through the MI Paddle Stewards program. The MI Paddle Stewards program is designed to empower paddlers to care for the waterways they love while helping conservation professionals detect the invasive species that threaten them. This in person paddle will focus on identifiying aquatic invasives and reporting them. 

Participants may be interseted in completeing the entire MI Paddle Stewards training by clicking here, though completion of the program is not required. 


  • Participants must bring a kayak/canoe/paddle board for the on-water events.
  • Paddlers must always wear life jackets out on the water.
  • All paddlers must complete a paddling class waiver prior to participation. Waivers can be viewed and signed digitally here.
