Clark Fork Coalition helps people learn about overnight river camping
Clark Fork Coalition and REI are having a workshop on June 14, 5:15 pm-6:15 pm on overnight river camping.
An REI paddling instructor will go over gear, river safety, and what to bring and leave behind for a day trip or over night river excursion. This workshop is free, open to the public, and will be outdoors on the front lawn of the Boone and Crockett building at 250 Station Drive. Participants can meet at the grizzly bear statue along the bike path, and are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or picnic blankets.
This workshop will be geared towards both new and seasoned river recreationalists who want to learn how to take their daytrips to the next level. Participants will learn what to bring and how to pack their watercraft for a paddle camping adventure. The instructor will also go over water safety and give suggestions on where to get started.
The June 14th event is part of the Coalition’s monthly “Water Walks and Talks” learning series, which keeps citizens informed about hot topics and recent developments in the Clark Fork River watershed.
