The talk will highlight the Mississippi and Missouri River Water Trails and possible new water trails in the St. Louis region. Leaders from organizations promoting water trails and paddling will also be invited to talk about their work.

Connecting people to our waters by getting them out on our rivers and lakes is a great way to develop stewardship of our water and have fun too. Established water trails are a great way to make that connection. Whether you have never paddled before or you have paddled the whole Mississippi River come join in our discussions on how to grow paddling sports in our region and state. Lifetime paddler and conservationist Greg Poleski will also open up the discussion of what could be done to make the Missouri River Water Trail a more robust resource offline and on the river.

Join the conversation, dream up river trail to-do lists and help Greg bump our existing water trail resources into a national treasure.
