The Watershed District is planning their 2019 annual canoe trip for Friday, June 14th (as always, dependent on weather and stream conditions).  Please save the date and plan to join us for another paddle exploring the lifelines of our watershed. 

This is a free ride and will include some sort of meal/snacks.  We anticipate having a limited number of canoes and life vests available on a first come, first serve basis so please reserve on your registration form.  Participants are encouraged to bring their own should they choose.  We highly recommend bringing sun screen, bug spray, drinking water, waterproof baggies, extra clothes, etc… 

Details of the trip (route, meeting locations, times) will be sorted out leading up to the trip and you will be notified when they are finalized.  In the meantime, please fill out the attached registration and waiver forms and encourage others that may be interested in coming with you to do the same.  Feel free to email mitch.enderson@lqpco.com or call 320-598-3319 with questions.​
