August 20 RTC members mowed a rough path from 1st Street in Afton to Bass Creek, establishing a rustic canoe launch. The canoe launch is a joint project with Green-Rock Audubon Society who recently acquired the property from the Friends of the Bass Creek Dam.
Our maiden voyage was about one mile toward the Rock River when we encountered a huge tree blocking the creek. A neighbor said he would clear it when the water goes down again. We look forward to making Bass Creek a new access point to the Rock River.
