  • Active club members, including kayaking professionals & lifetime. Provisional acceptance, pending approval by the TO.

This trip is limited to members who are WEC, unless exempt under Activity Policy Sec. F.1.  Registration for this trip will occur at a meeting on the Event site the evening before.

Narrative: We'll explore a bit of the Lewis and Clark River. This will be a lazy trip lead by a lazy TO; we'll piggy back with a paddling interpretive ranger from the Lewis and Clark National Historical Park who will be leading a tour group. We have permission to "tag along." The interpretive ranger will be talking about the local flora and fauna and history. As tag along guests - not members of the official tour -I'll ask participants on this OOPS trip to not interrupt / question the ranger.  

Bring snacks, plenty of water, dry clothes and towel.

I plan on arriving at the Park at about 0900 and exploring a bit before the paddle.

There is a 7$ fee to get into the Park and can be paid at the visitor center -- not from where we will launch. Appropriate pass in lieu of 7$ fee.
