Put on your walking shoes, grab your helmet and bike, or hop in your canoe/kayak
On October 11th to
Rally ‘Round Otsego’s Waters (RROW)

As part of this year’s Global Frackdown, we are once again celebrating our Otsego waters, headwaters to the mighty Susquehanna River and life force of our environment. While we are gathering at Otsego Lake, this is a celebration of all of Otsego’s waters – Gilbert Lake, Canadarago Lake, Goodyear Lake, Summit Lake, and all the many ponds and streams and creeks that course toward the rivers. Come celebrate the health of your favorite body of water!
Walkers will leave Lake Front Park in Cooperstown at 10:00am, walk up the east side of Otsego Lake and arrive at the West Pavilion in Glimmerglass State Park at approximately 12:30pm. Cyclists will leave from Lakefront at 11 am. Shuttles will provide transportation between the two parks throughout the walk. Participants will be able to join or leave the walk along the route and walk whatever distance they are comfortable with. Kayakers and canoeists will meet at Glimmerglass State Park at 10:00 for launching at 10:30 am. Bring life vests and appropriate safety gear and clothing appropriate for the water temperature. Boaters will paddle along the shoreline in a group around Hyde Bay and return to Glimmerglass.
 At Glimmerglass, lunch will be provided for everyone via potluck volunteers, along with live music by Heaven's Back Door. At 2:00pm, those who wish to participate in the return walk to Lake Front will leave Glimmerglass and arrive at Lake Front at approximately 4:30.

If you want to Rally ‘Round Otsego’s Waters but don’t want to walk, bike, or paddle, we would love volunteers to drive shuttles and bring potluck dishes.  To sign up for the event as a participant or volunteer, please contact Cat Gareth, Sponsored by Otsego 2000. Other sponsors welcome!
