fourcountyfloat2Are you looking for a fun and relaxing way to explore the Little Sioux River?  The Buena Vista, Cherokee, Clay and O’Brien County Conservation Boards have the opportunity that you are looking for.  Join four county
naturalists and an archaeologist as we engage in a “Four County Float.”

Event dates: Friday, August 5 and Saturday, August 6.  You may take part in single days or both days.  On Friday, the float will begin at Linn Grove Dam and take out at Wanata Park in Peterson.  On Saturday the float goes from the Prairie Heritage Center near Peterson and to Martin Access in Cherokee County.

Each day the float begins at 9:00 a.m. and may take between 5-6 hours
depending on water levels and conditions.  You can expect to take your time
exploring the sandbars, listening to birds, hunting for mussels and more!

Participants may bring their own canoe or kayak.  If you do not have one or
wish to borrow one, vessels will be available to rent for $10 each.
Transportation will be available to take people back to their vehicles;
however, personal water vessels will not be transported.

Discounted camping will be available at Buena Vista County Park, Martins
Access, and Dog Creek Park for those people who would like to take part in
both days’ activities and wish to stay overnight.

Registration is required.  The deadline to sign up is Monday, August 1.
Please visit any of the participating county conservation websites for more
