St. Louis River Alliance Canoe Tour and Picnic 2018
The St. Louis River Alliance’s Canoe Tour and Picnic will feature points of interest on the lower St. Louis River, mostly focusing on the Minnesota side. There will also be a plant expert to help identify plants and their medicinal uses.
The tour begins at Chambers Grove Park in Fond du Lac. There will be volunteers helping direct parking and boat drop off. The annual canoe tour is an opportunity for both experienced and non-experienced canoeists to explore the St. Louis River. Bring your own canoe or kayak if possible. Canoes, paddles and flotation devices will be available for registered people who do not have their own. (Must have paid RSVP to reserve equipment by Aug. 9). There will also be limited space on a pontoon on a first-come first-serve basis for those unable to paddle. Register early for these seats.
There will be experts who will speak to the group at key locations. A picnic lunch will be served at Chambers Grove Park at the end of the tour. The event will be held rain or shine, however, if the conditions are unsafe the event will be cancelled.
The cost to participate is $5 for SLRA members or $20 for the whole family. Non-members can sign up for $10 per person or $30 for a family. Children under 12 are free, but must be accompanied by an adult. A limited number of canoes and kayaks are available for those who don’t have one. Register early to reserve one.
