Paddle the Don Day

While I didn't actually paddle down the Don this year (I've done it twice), I went to a presentation that was held at the mouth of the Don next to the Keating Channel. The big hoopla this year was to announce the publication of the 2006 Don Progress Report (more on this later). There was also a free tour boat ride of the Portlands to look at the area that will be impacted by the mouth of the Don naturalization project.

Here's a few photos of the event.
