MISSISSIPPI RIVER CANOE TRIP

Canoeing on the Mississippi River

 

Date: Saturday, October 21
Time: 12:30 P.M. - 5:00 P.M.
Cost: $39.00 (includes box lunch)

Join Nate Hoogeveen, Iowa Department of Natural Resources Water Trails Coordinator, American Canoe Association instructor, and author of Paddling Iowa -- for a fun day on the Mississippi River! Join our experiential approach to learning how water trails can become key ingredients of an overall trails system locally and regionally. Highlights of the trip include: going through the 1906 Moline Lock; getting a glimpse of Quarter's One; locking through at Lock & Dam 15; and watching all types of river life.

The canoe trip is about 6.5 miles long, starting in Moline and ending in Rock Island, Illinois. A life jacket will be provided and worn at all times. A motorized Corps of Engineers Ranger Boat will be escorting our group. Hazards include: current, wakes from other pleasure craft, towboat traffic, water temperature, and weather. Reasons for possible cancellation, include, but are not limited to: weather - high winds, freezing temps, heavy rain; River height (if high river conditions exist); and Lock closure (if any circumstance arises in which Lock & Dam 15 closes).
