Join us for an evening of community, canoeing and ice cream! Stop by anytime between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. for a free introductory canoe ride on the Mississippi River, then grab some free ice cream and check out the other exhibits at our Stormwater Park and Learning Center.

This family-friendly event is great for kids and adults of all ages (though you must be at least 30 lbs. in order to fit the provided life jackets). In addition to learning to paddle on the river, participants will also have opportunities to learn about the Mississippi River’s history, water quality, plants, animals and more.

National Park Service rangers from the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area will be joined by MWMO and Mississippi Park Connection staff and guides from Wilderness Inquiry offering free canoe rides on the Mississippi River in exchange for your thoughts and ideas for river programming in the North and Northeast Minneapolis area.

While you’re here, check out our Water Wednesday raingarden workshop.
