John Buckley’s 80 for 80

A Fundraiser for Friends of Isabella Seniors

 

John Buckley, former owner of Buckley’s Mountainside Canoes on M 20, arrived in Isabella County in 1972. He soon became an admirer and proponent of the Chippewa River and all things environmental. Canoeing the Chippewa & other rivers became a metaphor for life. 

 

He turns 80 years old this summer and for approximately 24 hours on May 12th he will ATTEMPT to paddle 80 Kilometers of the Chippewa, between Lake Isabella & Mt Pleasant.
