Details

Join us for the first two days of our six-month Missouri River Corps of Rediscovery Expedition.

Weather permitting, we will launch the expedition from Missouri Headwaters Fishing Access Site near Three Forks, Montana on Saturday June 1, 2019.

We will paddle down river to camp at Fairweather Fishing Access Site at Clarkston Saturday night, then continue downstream and across the reservoir to end at Toston Dam on Sunday afternoon.

You are welcome to join us for either day or come for both days and camp overnight.

Those of us who are continuing for St. Louis will portage around the dam and camp to get a fresh start the following day.

If our launch date is rainy or snowy, we will simply delay the launch for a day or two to take advantage of the first nice day.

Please come equipped for camping, cooking, and canoeing. You will need to bring your own canoe or kayak, since we won't have any convenient means to loan out canoes this time.

This canoe trip is not a formal class, but rather a fun adventure that is open to friends and family, members of the Jefferson River Canoe Trail, all Green University students, members of the Bozeman Kayaking and Canoeing Meetup Group and anyone else with basic camping skills who would like to come along.

In lieu of a fee for the float trip, we would be grateful for generous donations to the Jefferson River Canoe Trail to support our work to secure additional public campsites along the Jefferson River segment of the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail.
