June 8, 2019, Saturday - Canoe RAVE at North Mississippi Regional Park

Time: 12:00 PM  4:00 PM

Location: North Mississippi Regional Park, 5116 N Mississippi Dr

Canoe RAVE at North Mississippi Regional Park

River Action Volunteer Events (RAVEs) are a fun way to explore the river in a way few others do.  All trips couple a restoration service project in a hard to reach area of the river with an adventure tour by National Park Service rangers.  Explore the river, learn about significant wildlife and cultural features, and do some good!

For this RAVE, we will explore the northern end of our park aboard our awesome partner Wilderness Inquiry’s 24-foot voyageur canoes, and along the way hear river stories from national park rangers. We’ll meet near picnic shelter C at North Mississippi Regional Park, and board a bus for River Park where we will hop in canoes to access an island service project. Then we will continue our paddle back down to North Miss where we started.

This fun recreation and volunteer restoration project is great for adults and kids over 12 years old. No canoeing experience needed. Groups of 9 or less are welcome to register. RAVEs are free events for volunteers – your only ticket is your service to the river!
