Southeastern Minnesota Come and learn about the canoe/kayak routes located in the scenic valleys of the bluff lands called the Driftless Area of Minnesota. Dave Lind will provide valuable first-hand information about the rivers and small streams covering over 600 miles of canoeing/kayaking routes of the Zumbro, Root, Cannon, Straight, and Whitewater Rivers as well as many less traveled branches and forks that offer fantastic scenery and wildlife viewing. Beginners, as well as experienced paddlers, will benefit from this information session that will cover an overview of river routes, how to select a route for your experience level, river paddling techniques like how to "read the river," planning a river outing, and much more. The session includes a PowerPoint presentation with many photos of the rivers as well as time for questions.
