The Mississippi River is truly one of our nation’s grandest rivers. Dividing our country in half, it has for generations served as the nation’s backbone and as a source of commerce and culture. It is called the “Father of Waters” and travels 2,300 miles through rich, natural environments and provides one of the world’s most diverse ecosystems. An elaborate network of streams, oxbow lakes, forests, wetlands and sandbars trail this river and create an elaborate sanctuary to millions of deer, fish, osprey, songbirds, bald eagles, least terns and other wildlife. Its recreational resource contribution is enormous. Canoeing/Kayaking this river is becoming increasingly popular but is not safe without the services of an experienced guide. ?
