A Tour of the Clinton-Kalamazoo Canal, Saturday, April 22, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

Michigan’s first internal improvement project dates back to 1837 - a proposed canal that ran from Lake St. Clair to Lake Michigan, straight through the Rochester community!

Retrace its route from Mt. Clemens to Rochester, see remains of one of the locks, and learn the history of this manmade waterway that endured as a millrace long after its use for transportation ended.

Bring a bag lunch. Participants drive themselves to multiple locations throughout the tour.

Cost: $15/Members, $20/Non-Members
