Paddle with an Archaeologist
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 30, 2021
PADDLE WITH AN ARCHAEOLOGIST
The Cherokee County Conservation Board is partnering with the Sanford Museum to provide you with a unique opportunity to paddle the Little Sioux River with an archaeologist on Saturday, July 10th!
Enjoy this leisurely float down the Little Sioux River while stopping at various sandbars along the way. Quinn Black, the Sanford Museum’s Archaeologist, will be sharing his expertise with us about local history and helping identify potential artifacts that we may find along the way.
The paddle will begin at 10:00am at Martins Access and end at Barnes Access. The trip will take around 3 hours, so plan on bringing a lunch or various snack items. It is recommended that participants dress for the weather and wear sunscreen and bug spray.
Participants will need to bring their own canoe or kayak to the event. The event is free, but registration is required by July 9th and participation is limited to 15 water vessels. The paddle is open to everyone, but children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
If river levels are too low to float, then we’ll do a river walk instead, looking at items found on sandbars near either Barnes Access or Martins Access.
To register or for more information, contact the Cherokee County Conservation Board by calling 712-225-6709 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Visit us on Facebook!
