Migration Paddle

Saturday, November 4; 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

 

Iowa’s fall is filled with sunny days, beautiful colors, and migrating animals.  Where better to experience all three than in a boat floating along the

Mississippi River?  This paddle will start at the Port Louisa Access and end at the Toolesboro Boat Access.  Participants will paddle mostly backwaters, staying close to the Iowa shoreline.  There is a short portage around the spillway at Lock and Dam 17. 

 A shuttle service will be available to participants.

 

Registration is required for this event but participation is limited to twenty boats.  Canoes and kayaks are available for rent. The canoe rental fee is $20 while the kayak rental fee is $15. If participants are bringing their own boat, the registration fee is $5.  Due to the intensity of the river, this trip is open to experience paddlers only.
