A Big Muddy Adventure: Maple Island Canoe Expedition
Friday, July 15, 2011 @ 8:00 AM-11:30 AM
Disappointed you missed the boat? June’s Maple Island Canoe Expedition filled fast, so we’ve scheduled a second Big Muddy Adventure. Sign up early to reserve your spot!
8:00 AM Audubon Migratory Birds and Wildlife Workshop
(Audubon Center at Riverlands)
9:15 AM Canoe Launch
Just downstream a short stretch from the Alton Lock and Dam is Maple Island, part of the Riverlands Migratory Bird Sanctuary. Accessible only by water, this unique and historic river island ecosystem still retains its natural state. Flocks of migratory birds use the island and its backwaters and wetlands as a resting place and hunting grounds. Join us, along with River Guides and Paddlers, for a Big Muddy Adventure as we canoe the Mighty Mississippi in 30-foot-long handmade canoes.
Cost: $35 per person.
Snacks and beverages provided.
Limited to 20 participants: 1st 10 OASIS and 1st 10 Academy of Science – STL.
