River Action Volunteer Events (RAVEs) are a fun way to explore the river in a way few others do. All trips couple a restoration service project in a hard to reach area of the river with an adventure tour by National Park Service rangers. Explore the river, learn about significant wildlife and cultural features, and do some good!
For this RAVE, we will explore the northern end of our park aboard our awesome partner Wilderness Inquiry’s 24-foot voyageur canoes, and along the way hear river stories from national park rangers. We’ll meet near picnic shelter C at North Mississippi Regional Park, paddle out, land at River Park to do a service project, and then paddle back to where we started.
This fun recreation and volunteer restoration project is great for adults and kids over 10 years old. No canoeing experience needed. RAVEs are free events for volunteers – your only ticket is your service to the river!
