Friday Night Writes Paddle

September 6 @ 5:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$25 – $45

Over the course of history, rivers have both imprinted their mark on the land and the written word. On this paddle, we will exchange poetry and prose inspired by rivers and then let the river move us while we write our own St. Croix Haiku or free form poem. Join the St. Croix River Association and St. Croix 360 for a thoughtful, early fall, sunset paddle on the St. Croix River and then put your thoughts to words at the end of the paddle.

We will meet at Log House Landing and then shuttle to Osceola Landing and paddle south to our vehicles for 6.5 gentle river miles.

Trip Rating: 2 (This event is a great option for new and beginner paddlers).

Paddle distance: 6.5 miles
