Sessions still open for Aug. 23 paddle around Lake Pepin, nature hike

Two voyageur (10-person) canoes will launch Saturday from the Frontenac, Minn., boat landing for a one-hour paddle around Lake Pepin as naturalists talk about the early explorers to the area. Four sessions are planned and only the first session is full. Pre-registration is required and participants must be 10 years old and able to swim. Call the park office at (651) 345-3401 to sign up.

Naturalist Bruce Ause will also be leading a hike at Frontenac State Park at 10 a.m. Saturday. The hike will start at the amphitheater across from the campground shower building.

Vehicle permits are required for the program and may be purchased at the park office.
