|Moonlight Canoe Excursion Set for Sept. 8|
Explore Shawnee Mission Park Lake by canoe through a program being offered by the Johnson County Park and Recreation District.
Participants in the Boating: Moonlight Canoe Excursion will get to hear the croaks and splash of frogs, the hooting of owls, and watch the moon rise over the water. Park naturalists will interpret nocturnal animal activity as the group canoes along the shoreline. Afterwards, participants will gather around a campfire for storytelling and an evening snack. Basic canoeing and swimming skills are required. Search for the keyword "boating" to find this program in the JCPRD's Activities Catalog and online listings.
