LIVE: Red River Paddling Excursions

River Keepers, Moorhead Parks & Rec, Starting Summer River Series

 

KVRR’s Adam Ladwig hang out on a kayak on the Red River with Christine Holland, executive director of River Keepers.

The group aims to raise awareness and appreciation for the river.

It’s teaming up with the Moorhead Parks and Recreation department for the River Paddling Excursion events series.

The first event is Red River Trivia, from 6-8 p.m. on Wednesday May 16th.

People will try to answer trivia questions about the river while kayaking or canoeing.

All equipment is provided on a first-come, first-serve basis.
