Lake Float

Open water! A summertime paddling favorite, Lake Loramie provides stunning views of wildlife and beautiful open water scenery. On Monday, August 29th at 5:30 pm join naturalists at Shawnee Prairie Preserve west of Greenville on St. Rt. 502 for an exciting summer paddle. After meeting at the Nature Center, participants will carpool to the put in location. Once there, everyone will launch the boats for an evening on the lake! Depending on the evening, the group may choose to paddle among the islands or choose a more secluded route through the channels. Be sure to bring a hat, water, sunscreen, bug repellent, and sunglasses with a strap.

Paddling outings are weather dependent, and adjustments may be necessary due to conditions. All equipment is provided. Parks’ staff members are certified kayak instructors. Dress for the possibility of getting wet. Call to reserve a kayak or canoe, and there will be a $10 fee for the program.
