Field Representative Peter Cornelison will lead us seven miles down the Columbia River from Mayer State Park to Mosier. Along the way, we will pass by Memaloose Island, see beautiful shorelines, lovely sandy beaches and get an up-close look at the area Union Pacific Railroad wants to use for the double track expansion into Mosier, which Friends is actively opposing.
This outing is for experienced kayakers and canoeists* only. You will need to supply your own gear; Friends does not provide equipment or instruction. You must also be a competent swimmer.
*Canoes with floatation and sit on top kayaks are OK if it is not too windy.
