Check back in early 2018 for event details!
This family-friendly event includes free ice cream treats (thanks to your local Dairy Queen), free family canoe rides with National Park Service rangers and Wilderness Inquiry, and hikes in 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.
Join us to celebrate the amazing natural feature and 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 let them guide you on a canoe ride in a ten-person, voyageur canoe!
This event is FREE and open to the public; donations are accepted to offset costs.
