FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 23, 2019
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 13th!
Enjoy this leisurely float down the Little Sioux River while stopping at various sandbars along the way. Megan Stroh Messerole, the Sanford Museum’s Archaeologist, will be sharing her 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 near the Mill Creek Bridge and end at Wescott Park in Cherokee. The trip will take around 4-5 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 can bring their own canoe or kayak to the event or they can borrow one from the Cherokee County Conservation Board free of charge. The event is free, but registration is required 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.
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!
