Saving the best for last on enjoyable MVFN Fall Colours Paddle - News - By Cliff Bennett. Stittsville/Richmond Local Community News

"Record numbers participated in the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists (MVFN) Annual Fall Colours canoe/kayak trip on Sunday, Oct. 3, the last paddle of the season. Thirty enthusiast MVFN members and guests in eleven canoes and eight kayaks assembled at the north arm of Crotch Lake to launch their craft and explore along the shorelines of bays and islands. The group enjoyed the awe inspiring beauty of the colours of Laurentian Shield rock outcrops backed by magnificent multi-coloured maples, poplars, oak and sumac, shouldered by the rich greens of many pines."
