Trip leader has all COVID-19 vaccines but will accept unvaccinated people on paddle. 

Paddle from Seine River at dock close to rue Lavérendrye on the east side of river close to where I live. There is parking on Lavérendrye , Laflèche and Notre Dame .

I paddled on July 24 past the Edgewood -Deniset footbridge up to the riffles  where it was getting a little shallow.  The hardest part was entry and exit of canoe and doing the limbo to go under a tree going over the river. An interesting observation were weasels of some kind near Happyland Park .

Meet at   10 am and paddle for about 2 hours total .

I can possibly partner people . If interested and don't have canoe please mention if you have PFD and paddle .

Bring hat , water and snacks and appropriate footwear .
