Posted Jul. 14, 2014

Kent State University faculty and staff will embark on the first-ever Crooked River Commute from July 25-26. This kayaking trek along the Cuyahoga River from the Kent Campus to Kent State’s Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative is intended to promote the river as a shared regional asset for education, recreation and sustainability.

You are invited to cheer on participants at the start and finish of the trip. The kayaking trek will begin early morning on Friday, July 25, at Heritage Park in Kent and end with a celebration late evening on Saturday, July 26, at Wendy Park in Cleveland.
