Open the flood­gates

Richmond Hill Post - - LIFE -

The 24th an­nual Pad­dle the Don will take place on Sun­day, May 7, with the ca­noes and kayaks lin­ing up to launch from Ernest Thomp­son Se­ton Park. Par­tic­i­pants from across the city will pad­dle 10.5 kilo­me­tres down the river, wind­ing through the back­yards of North York, Rosedale and Lawrence Park to the Keat­ing Chan­nel. The Toronto and Re­gion Conser- va­tion Author­ity opens the G. Ross Lord Dam at Finch Av­enue and Duf­ferin Street to raise the wa­ter level of the Don River for this event. All par­tic­i­pat­ing boats must be reg­is­tered and pay a $100 fee. The pro­ceeds go to the TRCA to sup­port its on­go­ing work in pro­tect­ing, con­serv­ing and en­hanc­ing the Don River wa­ter­shed.
