The O'Brien County Conservation Board and the Little Sioux Valley Conservation Association is sponsoring the 1st Annual Inkpaduta Canoe Race to the Prairie Heritage Center! The event will be held on Saturday, Aug. 15 beginning at 10 a.m. Canoes will enter the water at the Hwy 10 bridge near Peterson. The race will finish at the Prairie Heritage Center. First prize will be a two night stay at the 12-person camping cabin at Mill Creek and second prize will be a 2 night stay at a 6-person camping cabin at Dog Creek. If you aren't in the race for speed, that's okay too. All registered participants completing the course in under 6 hours will also be entered in a drawing for a 2 night stay in a 6-person camping cabin. The registration deadline is today. The entrance fee of $30/canoe includes two t-shirts. Additional t-shirts will be available for sale at the Prairie Heritage Center. Lunch will also be sold at the center after noon, so bring your friends and support your favorite team.
