A Big Muddy Adventure: Maple Island Canoe Expedition

Program:
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.
