Join Menard County Trails & Greenways on October 15, 2022 as we paddle 5 beautiful miles of the Sangamon River from 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. Experts will be floating along with the group to answer questions about the geology, geography, fish, birds and other wildlife.
All participants must pre-register! Registration ends October 8th!
