Paddle exploration set for Duck Creek CA
CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. --The Cape Girardeau Conservation Nature Center will host their first canoe trip of the season at Duck Creek Conservation Area (CA) April 28 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Missouri offers many excellent opportunities for boating and fishing, and there are ample opportunities to leisurely kayak and canoe to enjoy the scenery, according to Greg Jacobs, a Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) Naturalist. Jacobs said that's exactly what's in store for the Cape Nature Center's first canoe trip of the 2012 season.
"Participants are encouraged to bring their own canoe or kayak or they can call to reserve one of ours," said Jacobs. "Those who need it can receive basic instructions and water safety training prior to the trip."
Jacobs said this event will help people to discover nature and celebrate Missouri's great outdoor opportunities.
This canoe trip is open to participants ages 16 and up and registration is required. For more information on this and other events at the Cape Girardeau Conservation Nature Center, call 573-290-5218 or go online to www.mdc.mo.gov.
