A most unique adventure combining a hike through steel mill waste piles of Lorain, OH, now revegetating themselves into new ecosystems and habitat along with kayaking through the industrial Black River. Recent restoration projects are yielding increased fish population, a large rookery (heronry) and several bald eagle nests. We stopped counting after the 8th bald eagle siting! Picnic by the river. Kayaks – thanks to Grumpy’s Bait, Tackle & Kayaks.
