Canoeing In Michigan


Red Cedar River in Michigan

The Red Cedar River is a westward flowing river in Michigan which is a tributary of the Grand River. Its source is east of Williamston; it runs about 45 miles through Okemos, East Lansing, including the campus of Michigan State University, and finally Lansing where it empties into the Grand River. It is not navigable by boats any larger than recreational size, and is not an important shipping route. Its watershed area is estimated at 472 square miles, and it has 12 tributaries of its own. Because of frequent bacterial contamination, the river serves as a tool to teach local students the importance of clean water. The river is named for the trees commonly known as "red cedar" that were prevalent and still are somewhat common near the river's source and beginning length. The tree however, is properly a type of juniper.
