Come and join us for a Fall Canoe Cruise from McHardy Park, in Brandon, to the Highway 38/42 bridge at historic East Sioux Falls (the Arboretum) on Saturday, October 2, 2010.

Meet at 1 P.M. at McHardy Park in Brandon. This route has short stretches of flat water with gentle Class I rapids. A pole is useful on Split Rock Creek when the water is low. The water will probably be the best we have had this time of the year for quite a while.

Deer, fish, muskrat, ducks, owls, turkeys and other wildlife may be seen. The cruise takes about 3-4 hours depending on the water conditions and the skill and goals of the paddlers.

Bring a camera, snacks, and some drinking water and enjoy an afternoon on the water. An alternate route might be used if conditions warrant. The put-in and take-out may be altered depending on conditions. Life vests are required.

For more information call Eugene Preston at 605-582-2573.

*yes, I know this photo is not the location - it is in Flandreau - but it shows paddlers gathering!
