The Winnebago County Board of Supervisors will host the Canoe Float Trip scheduled for Sunday at Thorpe Park from 2:00-4:00 PM. There was a time change from last week when it was postponed, to this week according to Winnebago County Naturalist Lisa Ralls.
On Sunday from people will be able to borrow the Conservation Board’s canoes paddles, and life jackets free of charge to enjoy a leisurely paddle around Lake Catherine. The event will take place at the lake’s boat ramp/fishing dock. Ralls explained that all are welcome from beginner to pro.
In addition, there will be handouts and other information about the Winnebago River Water Trail, as well as about fishing in Iowa.
There is no need to preregister for the Fall Canoe Float, people only need to show up at the boat ramp any time between 2:00 and 4:00 PM. In case of inclement weather, the float will need to be canceled and that information will be on the WCCB Facebook page (www.facebook.com/WinnebagoCCB) and the WCCB’s Twitter feed (@WinnebagoCCB). For more information about the event, people can contact Winnebago County Naturalist Lisa Ralls at 641-565-3390 or at firstname.lastname@example.org .
