 Annual ‘Get to know your Watershed’ Canoe Trip

The MRWCC is pleased to announce our Annual ‘Get to know your Watershed’ Canoe trip will take place on Saturday June 24th  in the eastern sandbed reach of the Milk River across incredible ranchlands and into the Milk River Canyon!

Canoe Rentals are very limited this year, and we encourage you to bring your own. We will make arrangements for water craft to be moved up off the river valley for easy retrieval from the main access road off the take out location. Participants will be returned to their vehicles at the end of the trip. A light lunch and water will be provided. This will be a long, and sometimes challenging trip with extensive sandbars and braided channels, which will make for a long day.

This is a great opportunity to access rarely seen country! Time permitting, we will have the opportunity to explore and see some of the rich history of early settlement and the NWMP, see wildlife, and learn about the great stewardship of our working rangelands!

Access is challenging and the trip will be cancelled without fair weather due to safety concerns. The meeting site is approximately 1hr East of Milk River, for those traveling from a larger distance away, accommodation is available in Milk River,and limited un-serviced overnight parking/camping can occur at the pull out site along the Milk River and Hwy 880 bridge. (Writing on Stone is unfortunately booked solid for the weekend)

Thank you to our Landowner partners for being accommodating and providing access across their lands to make this trip possible!

To register or for more information contact Mary Lupwayi at 403-647-3808, again space is very limited, last minute cancellations and no-shows will be billed for MRWCC expenses.
