Paddle the Kootenai River
To commemorate explorer David Thompson’s travels through the Kootenai, we will follow living historians in period clothing from the Northwest Brigade of the American Mountain Men as they retrace 14 miles of this historic water route from the Boundary County boat launch, located just south of the Kootenai National Wildlife Refuge, to Ball Creek Ranch. Author Jack Nisbet will join Nature Conservancy and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service staff to discuss the history, flora and fauna of the valley. Registration deadline is May 5.
Date: Saturday, May 13 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Location: Kootenai River, Deep Creek Boat Launch
Cost: $50/person [includes paddling equipment]
