The Fargo-Moorhead group River Keepers is offering a women’s camping, cooking and canoeing excursion on the Red River from June 1 to June 3.
In a news release, River Keepers said participants will paddle from the headwaters of the Red in Breckenridge, Minn., and end at historic Fort Abercrombie. There’ll be two nights of camping, and a skilled chef will teach outdoor cooking skills and the group will make their own meals.
Paddlers also will learn about the natural features of the Red River along the route. Because the group will be small, paddlers will have flexibility in setting the course of their adventure. Beginners are welcome, and women who are reasonably fit, in good health, comfortable on the water and with camping will enjoy the trip.
Participants must be 18 years of age or older and only have to bring a sleeping bag, clothes and personal items. Everything else, including canoes, paddles, lifejackets, tents, transportation, food and guides, will be provided.
To reserve a spot or for more information, contact Christine Laney, River Keepers project coordinator, at (701) 235-2895 or email her at Christine@riverkeepers.org.
