CANCELLED — MCTG Sangamon River Fall Float
October 16, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The river level is too high to safely hold the float! Sorry for any inconvenience cancellation has caused. Full refunds are being processed.
Join Menard County Trails & Greenways on October 16, 2021 as we paddle 5 beautiful miles of the Sangamon River from the Gudgel Bridge to the New Salem riverside picnic area/boat ramp.
Explore on your own or take part in a guided float to learn about the geology, history and nature of the Sangamon River in Menard County. Immediately following the float everyone is invited to socialize around a cozy campfire for a weenie roast (provided with registration).
This stretch of the river has an exceptional natural history story to tell. Each participant who chooses to partake in the guided tour will receive a points-of-interest location map and corresponding handout with a detailed description of each stop. Experts will be floating along with the group to answer questions.
All participants must pre-register! Registration ends October 10th!
