SATURDAY, AUGUST 24 | 10am-5pm
Doan Brook Watershed Partnership will host the 8th Annual Take to the Lake on Saturday, August 24th from 10am-5pm. Join us for an afternoon of paddling, guided hikes, yoga, and live music along the banks of historic Lower Shaker Lake. Canoeing on the Shaker Lakes used to be a popular pastime in the first half of the 20th century but public boating is no longer promoted on the lakes. Take to the Lake gives participants a chance to resurrect this recreational opportunity for a day and to gain a different perspective on the lakes and their place in our watershed community.
