Geode River Paddle
Geodes are nature’s treasure chest! Participants will meet at the Bentonsport boat access. You will be paddling down a beautiful stretch of river. Between stops, you will search for geodes.
Ryan Clark, a Geologist with the Iowa Geological Survey, will be leading the paddle as he talks about the geology of the river, why we can find geodes in that particular stretch of river and how geodes form.
There is no cost for the paddle, however, Pre-registration is required and participation is limited. Canoes will be available for loan if participants do not have their own canoe or kayak. The trip is open to all. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
This is an official Des Moines River Water Trails event cosponsored by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources and Jefferson County Conservation.
