Summer Solstice Picnic Paddle
June 21 @ 4:30 pm - 9:00 pm$40 – $60
Join the St. Croix River Association staff on a memorable and scenic, summer solstice picnic paddle. We will embark from the boat launch in kayaks at MN Interstate State Park and paddle south to the sunset at Osceola Landing. During the journey, MN Interstate State Park Naturalist, Jenni Webster, will reveal stories hidden in the landscapes of the St. Croix River.
We will take a picnic break halfway through the paddle at Eagle’s Nest campground. Your registration includes a delicious dinner option (Hearty Sandwich, Seasonal Veggie, Kettle Potato Chips, Homemade Dessert, La Croix Sparkling Water) from Juneberry Cafe, a wonderful locally owned eatery in Taylors Falls, MN.
We will meet at Osceola Landing, where Taylors Falls Canoe & Kayak will shuttle us to the starting landing at Minnesota Interstate Park.
