*New for 2019! If you purchase 3 river trips at full price, you will get $5 off any other river trip for 2019. Must purchase all at the same time. If the trip is canceled, you must move to another trip.
Your leaders will fit you with a life-jacket and paddle, drive to the river, discuss maneuvering techniques and canoe safety, and guide you down the river. We paddle for about two hours, stop for lunch, and paddle about two more hours. We are flexible with each trip’s time, which depends in part on natural forces, such as wind and water levels. Our aim is to return to the Arboretum by 3:30 PM, give or take an hour.

*PLEASE NOTE: Due to water levels or other circumstances, it may be necessary to pick an alternative river. Leaders may make this change at any time to provide a safe and fun experience.
**PLEASE NOTE: Must register by Wednesday before the trip. If we do not have enough paddlers, a trip will be canceled Thursday morning.
