PADDLE: The Minnesota River with Don Robertson

July 26, 2014 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Paddling the MinnesotaRiver

A Dakota Perspective on the Minnesota River

CURE Board member Don Robertson will be leading a paddle on the Minnesota River on Saturday, July 26.  The exact location will be determined the week before the paddle to accommodate changing water levels, but regardless, this trip will give you an opportunity to explore the river that inspired CURE’s founding 22 years ago.  Furthermore, Don is an enrolled member of the Sisseton Oyate, and he will be sharing stories about the importance of Minnesota River to the Dakota people.

This trip will be appropriate for people with basic to intermediate paddling ability, though plan to be on the river from 9:00 am until lunchtime.  Also, please bring your own bagged lunch and water, and dress for the weather in light, layered clothes, a hat, and sunglasses.  Don’t forget your sunscreen!
