And you can rent a canoe or kayak!
Build Lebanon Trails is excited to announce our first 2-in-1 community event! We’lll kick off spring with a kayak or canoe paddle on Cheadle Lake and our first March of the Munchkins.
Kids of all ages are invited to dress up in a costume or uniform representing exploration or outdoor activities. Children (under 18) who dress up will receive a BLT token and a copy of our Lebanon Explorer’s Guide.
The munchkin march will proceed along the paved portion of the North Shore Trail. We’ll look at the plant life and wildlife and search for the rare Oregon pond turtles that live at the lake.
For those who enjoy being out on the water, we will explore the lake water trail. Bring your kayaks, canoes or other nonmotorized human-propelled watercraft and enjoy the history of the development of Cheadle Lake Park from a different perspective.
If you’re not a munchkin and you don’t paddle, come anyway to join the fun!
