The Longfellow Community Council would like to invite you to our 12th Annual Share the River Gorge Canoe Paddle and Ice Cream Social! The event is scheduled for 6-8pm Wednesday, July 27th at West River Parkway and 35th Street.
This family-friendly event includes free ice cream (thanks to Dairy Queen), free family canoe rides with National Park Service rangers and Wilderness Inquiry, and hikes of the nearby oak savanna restoration area led by Friends of the Mississippi River Gorge Stewards. The annual event is hosted by the River Gorge Committee of Longfellow Community Council.
This year’s event celebrates the National Park Service’s 2016 centennial, and recognizes the national park that runs through our own neighborhood – the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area! Visit with rangers at the riverside sand flats below the stone steps at 34th Street to learn more about our national park and have them give you a canoe ride in a ten-person voyageur canoe!
This event is FREE and open to the public; donations are accepted to offset costs. To RSVP, click here, and don’t forget to invite your friends!
