Location: Lake Girardeau Conservation Area

Join us on scenic Lake Girardeau as we watch the final blaze of autumn reflect in the water. This program is an opportunity to simply borrow a boat and go at your own pace. Staff will be on hand to monitor safety and give instruction but you spend your time doing whatever you choose. Binoculars, a fishing pole and permit, or a camera might all make good companions as your drift across this medium sized lake. Lifejackets, kayaks (weight limit 300lbs), paddles and other safety equipment will all be provided. Participants should bring water, snacks, and shoes which can get wet for entering and exiting the kayak. This program is open to ages 10 and up. Participants ages 10-15 require an adult to accompany them. Meet at the main boat launch off of county road 383
