According to a post on Wichita Kansas Kayak Network on FaceBook, the Ark River access point at Burley Bend (half way between Belle Plains and Udall on Rt.55) is closed due to work on the bridge - No Trespassing signs are posted.
We'd like to thank everyone who attended and participated in our new Sea Scout Ship's Recruitment event at the Boathouse. It was a well attended event and we're excited about the Ship's first meeting on April 5th. Sea Scout Committee Chair Jamie Mills and Skipper Jonathan Marr enthusiastically explained the ship's mission and their vision for the future. Board member's of the ARC spoke about our mission and our delighted support for this knew youth program. It's never too late to apply. You can visit our Sea Scout Page for more details. Enjoy some photos.
The Arkansas River Coalition Board of Directors voted in March, 2021 to charter a Sea Scout ship ("ship" is the Sea Scout equivalent of "troop" in BSA parlance.) The newest member of the ARC BoD, Jon Marr, is the "Skipper" of this ship and Jamie Mills is the contact person for the ship at the Quivira Office. Sea Scouts is open to youth ages 14-20. Our ship focuses on building youth leadership skills, water safety skills, and assisting the ARC with river conservation efforts and events. See the details on the Facebook page HERE
