The Friends of Pool 9 Mississippi River Adventure Day, planned for July 16, has openings for the younger children (ages 5 – 8). The older age group (9 – 13) is filled to capacity and additional registrations will not be accepted for that group. The registration form can be found at the Friends of Pool 9 website, friendsofpool9.org, and can be completed online or printed and submitted via U.S. mail. Children in the 5 – 8 age group will take part in river activities at the beaches north of Lansing. Groups will be transported by Mississippi Explorer boats to activity sites led by professionals in their field. Activities will include visiting an eagle nest, polly-wogging for clams, seining for fish, dip-netting aquatic organisms, taking an excursion to watch a commercial fisherman and some bird sighting. There is no cost to the participants and a free noon lunch will be provided for all children and parents. A personal flotation device (life jacket) will be provided and must be worn at all times when children are on the boat or in the water. Parents bringing more than one child will be provided an additional FOP9 adult volunteer to accompany additional children. The last day FOP9 will accept applications for the river adventure day is July 1.
