Co-Leader: Sue Fitch
Location: Canton, IL (South of Peoria, IL)
Skill Level: Beginner
Category: Day Trip
Details: Come celebrate the first official water trail completed at Banner Marsh. We will be camping at Rice Lake Friday-Sunday (or you can day-trip it). The plan is to meet at Wheel lake at 9:00AM Saturday to officially celebrate the first water trail. We will launch promptly at 10:00AM. Bring a lunch with you and bring your camera's. I'd like everyone to plan on a relaxed pace with time to snap pictures and enjoy the trail with planned stops along the way to explore and about half way through we will stop and eat. Camping is available at Rice Lake and it is first come first serve. We will be camping / paddling there Friday night. Dave Watts will be hosting a Leave No Trace class on Sunday the 24th at the Wheel Lake shelter. Details of this event can be found on the Prairie State Canoeist website or contact him on Facebook. LNT principles are great for anyone who loves the outdoors. Bring a youth along to help get this info into young ears. See you at the Lake! Jeff & Sue Fitch
