Friends of the Chicago River is partnering with the Chicago Botanic Garden to offer a rare opportunity to canoe the lakes of the Chicago Botanic Garden. Herons, ducks, small fish, and maybe even a few turtles and frogs will greet you as we explore their watery habitat. No experience with canoeing is necessary; instruction, canoes, life jackets, and paddles are all provided. Please choose one of the scheduled start times.

Children must be at least 5 years old to participate.
Maximum three participants per boat.
