is not Required
Join REI for an epic afternoon of women inspiring women. We are excited to share our experiences with other women and inspire you to be a Force of Nature! This open house style event kicks-off the paddling season with local groups including: Friends of the Boundary Waters, Inland Sea Kayakers, Rapids Riders, MN Canoe Assoc., Rice Creek Boat Club, and The Great Old Broads to talk about trip planning, great paddling destinations, and how to get involved in the paddling community. We'll also have a sweepstakes for great prizes, give-aways for everyone who registers, classes including Stand Up Paddleboard Basics and Kayaking Basics, and at 7pm we will have a special program from Natalie Warren, one of the first women to paddle the Canoeing With The Cree route from Minneapolis to Hudson Bay - please register for these programs separately. REI will provide appetizers and there will be a cash bar available with beer, wine and NA drinks. We're committed to creating more opportunities for women to spend more time outdoors. That's why this year, we're offering more classes, events and trips designed for women than ever before. Let's make outside the largest level playing field on earth!
