Launch location: Launch from the park on the south side of Avenue de l’Eglise in St Norbert, just east of Pembina Hwy. Parking is also on the south side of the street.

Time: Please arrive at the launch location at 9:30 AM so we can launch by 10:00.

Description: (September 1 update: This is a changed route because the La Salle River is not navigable upstream past the Trappist Monastery.)
Paddle upstream to the monastery (1.5K), then downstream to the Red River (1.5K + 2K). We may see owls there. Then paddle upstream on the Red River for 4K to 6K.  Then return to the launch location.

Distance: Minimum 7K (La Salle River only). Plus the amount we paddle out-and-back on the Red River.

Lunch: We’ll stop for lunch at an appropriate location at an appropriate time.

Boats: If you don’t have a canoe or kayak, we can try to partner you with a canoe owner who is looking for a bow paddler.

Rating: Novice (bow paddler in the canoe of an experienced stern paddler) to intermediate.

Bring: Lunch, water, sunscreen, your name tag, and extra warm clothes.
