Bring the whole family for a safe and fun canoe trip on the slow-moving Columbia Slough!  We’ll have some canoes set up in a “bimaran” configuration - this setup is safe for new paddlers, infants and grandparents alike. Families may also borrow regular canoes and kayaks (limited).  We’ll provide the boat, lifejacket, paddle, - you provide the paddling muscle.  Enjoy the water, plants, and wildlife from the best seat possible! $5-10/person $25/family suggested donation, advanced registration required.
