Friends of the Root River host float down the river


Mon, Jul 25th, 2016
Posted in Lanesboro The Great Outdoors

The Friends of the Root River (FORR) hosted a float down the Root River on July 16 with 18 participants. Six people rode in luxury on a raft owned by Mitch Gilbert of Lanesboro (shown in the picture), while the others paddled canoes and kayaks on the three-hour trip from the Allen Bridge to Moen’s Bridge. George Spangler, retired U of M professor and National Trout Center board member, shared knowledge of the river ecology and biology along the way. The float ended with root beer floats served with delicious Spring Grove root beer generously donated by Spring Grove Soda Pop Inc. FORR plans events for the public about every three months. Go to www.friendsoftherootriver.org for the latest information about FORR events and to learn how you can become a FORR supporter.
