Required orientation will be presented at Burr Oak Woods W. Robert Aylward Education Pond. MDC will provide canoes, kayaks, and PFD’s. Attend orientation at the Burr Oak Woods Education Pond to learn about Missouri River navigation and to brush up on our canoe strokes before we head out on the river. We will prepare you for your upcoming The Magic of Sunset float on Saturday, September 11; 5:30-9 PM. Must attend to participate in the float.
Join us for the experience of a lifetime! You will be enchanted on this mighty river as the sun sinks in the sky, blending into the night lights of Kansas City. We will float from Platte Landing in Parkville to Kaw Point. This is a 10-mile float. Please dress for the weather. Bring bug spray, water and a good flashlight. Bring a simple dinner to enjoy out on the river. *MDC will provide all equipment including PFD (life vests) for each person. Participants are welcome to bring their own Coast Guard approved PFD if they prefer. PFDs will be required on MDC boats at all times. This program is dependent on safe weather and river conditions. Participants will be contacted if conditions are not acceptable on the weekend of the event. All participants MUST register separately. Please bring a headlamp or flashlight.
