 Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR)

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) is offering a series of Paddle Ohio canoe floats this summer to promote paddling on Ohio’s state-designated wild, scenic and recreational rivers, water trails and select state park lakes.

ODNR Commemorative pins:

The Paddle Ohio program rewards individuals with a commemorative pin each time they paddle four different Ohio wild, scenic and recreational rivers, water trails or select state park lakes. To participate in the program, paddlers may submit information about their paddling trips on the Paddle Ohio registration form at paddle.ohiodnr.gov/getyourpin. ODNR will mail pins to qualifying individuals at the end of the 2017 boating season. Pins are available for paddlers who paddle four, eight, 12, 16 and up to a maximum of 20 different segments of designated Paddle Ohio waters.

ODNR maps, information, events :

Maps and more information about Ohio’s scenic rivers and water trails are available from the ODNR Division of Parks and Watercraft on the Paddle Ohio website. Although people are encouraged to paddle at their convenience, a number of scheduled events are planned throughout the summer, including floats on Stillwater/Greenville Creek, Little Miami, Maumee, Mahoning and Mohican state scenic rivers.
