YANKTON – Fourteen informational signs will be installed in spring for canoeists and kayakers using the Missouri River between Yankton and Sioux City, Iowa.
They’ll be located along the Missouri National Recreational River Water Trail. The signs will contain historical and scientific information and denote the mileage between points.
Trail organizer Tim Cowman told the Press & Dakotan newspaper that the historical notes will help visitors realize how much of the river has changed since it was explored by Lewis and Clark.
Various groups are involved in improving public access to the river, establishing trailheads and routes, and building a website to plan float trips and disseminate information.
