This special event is open only to current members of Minnesota Naturalists’ Association. Climb on a raft and enjoy a program led by naturalists, with naturalists.
Experience a rafting program at Coon Rapids Dam and wow each other with our vast resource of knowledge of birds, climate, plants, insects and geology along the mighty Mississippi. It’s a rare chance for naturalists to meet and network doing what we love: working in the outdoors. The rafting will be from 4pm to 7pm. Afterwards we will sit around a campfire on a beautiful late summer evening.
What to bring: Yourself, water shoes, pants/shorts that can get wet, bug spray, dry bag, snacks, something for dinner around the campfire (maybe a hot dog to roast), your knowledge. Adult beverages are allowed, and a fridge will be available at the CRD Visitor Center for drinks and food.
Paddling and safety equipment will be provided.
Registration Required! Registration opens June 5th.
If you can’t can’t make the rafting part or miss out on registration, join in on the campfire!
