Canoe Trip:

​The Lac qui Parle – Yellow Bank Watershed will be sponsoring another annual canoe trip this year and you are invited! The ride is currently scheduled for June 18th. As always, the trip will be subject to water levels and weather conditions. Some canoes will be available, but you are certainly welcome and encouraged to bring your own canoe/kayak and life vests. The trip will be in the morning and will conclude with a provided lunch. No registration fee is required, you just need to come and be ready to paddle! Sunscreen, bug spray, and drinking water is recommended. Please RSVP to mitch.enderson@lqpco.com or 320-598-3319 if you would like to partake. The final route will be announced closer to the trip. Please forward and share this with anyone you may think is interested! Thanks and see you on the river!
