    Details: Starting from the Eaton Preserve boat launch at 135 St./Pilcher Rd., we will paddle through Plainfield's most historic area: the site of early 1900's Electric Park and the Walker's Grove sawmill. We'll paddle where the Potawatomi lived and hunted and where early settlers banded together for safety during the Black Hawk War. We will finish the trip enjoying the channels and riffles at Hammel Woods Forest Preserve on the edge of Shorewood.
