Friends of the Root River will sponsor a float trip on the Root River on Saturday, July 28 from Moen’s Bridge on Fillmore County 21 to the County 250 bridge. Mitch Gilbert and George Spangler will act as naturalist guides. Families and individuals interested in nature, the river and water quality are invited to take part. Bring your own kayak, canoe or rent one from Little River General Store in Lanesboro, (507) 467-2943, and take it to the canoe landing at Moen’s Bridge on County 21 beginning at 1:30 p.m. There is space available for six people on the raft. (Bring lawn chairs.) We will shuttle cars to our take out at the County 250 bridge. The flotilla will leave at 2 p.m. and take about four hours to reach the County 250 Bridge as we will do more floating and looking than all out paddling. There will be root beer floats at the end of the trip.
