Stream Teams United has scheduled the dates for Paddle MO 2018 for Sept. 19-23.

Take part in this adventure down the last 100 miles of the Missouri River, starting in Hermann, Missouri, and ending at the confluence as North America’s longest river meets the Mississippi River. 

Along the way, explore riverside small towns, learn about Missouri River history, and enjoy locally-sourced food from the Missouri River Valley.

Registration is open now and limited to the first 100 participants. Paddlers can choose to float the entire five days, or can opt for just the weekend trip.

Your Paddle MO registration fee is all inclusive for five days and includes a T-shirt, boat decal, journal with maps and river descriptions, camping with facilities beginning Sept. 18, daily transportation, gear transportation, meals, entertainment, activities, educational opportunities, insurance, and special swag from our sponsors.

Add-ons are available, such as a seat in the June Bug canoe, guided by Big Muddy Mike, kayak and canoe rental, and various beginning and end of trip shuttling options.

We are working to change aspects of the trip to keep it interesting for returning paddlers, while also keeping the unique features. 

This fall, full-week paddlers will start on Wednesday at Hermann Riverfront Park, and the weekend paddlers will join the group in St. Charles, giving everyone the opportunity to experience popular educational stops like Pelican Island, and the breathtaking and exhilarating confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers.

Exciting new education features and topics will be added, directed by Bill and Jody Miles of Earth’s Classroom.

What are past participants saying about the trip?

“Paddle MO makes me accept a more direct relationship with the Missouri River, with more of a concern for it’s welfare,” said one 2017 paddler.
