Mississippi River from Appleton to Almonte MVFN Canoe/Kayak Outing

Sunday, August 26, 2012

Meet at 9 a.m. at the boat launch site in Appleton, on River Road just below the Appleton dam. We will canoe/kayak along the Mississippi River shoreline’s wet meadows and swamps. When we reach Almonte, we will stop at the Almonte beach where we can swim in the river. We will lock our canoes and go for lunch at the Barley Mow. We will paddle back to Appleton. Each way takes about 2 hours.

Bring: Lots of drinking water, binoculars, (we will be going to the Barley Mow for lunch), bug juice, life jackets (mandatory). Every vessel needs a safety kit (Bailer, floating throw-line, pea-less whistle & flashlight). An extra paddle is recommended per vessel.

 If you have a canoe and need a partner, or don’t have a canoe and would like to partner, call Bob or Louise at 613-623-2358 or .
