May is Great for Paddling, but Watch for Bridge Construction Hazards

Please check the May Mid Mo Newsletter for info re two specific river locations which paddlers should avoid due to bridge construction, debris, and temporary dams. Iowa has a lot of bridges, and a lot of bridge projects in the works, by all levels of government. If in doubt, we suggest that you check your route by vehicle, or contact the appropriate county conservation office. If you learn of additional such situations, please forward them, and we will include the info in a future IWTA Newsletter.

Reminder to fly our national flag:
May 19 Armed Forces Day
May 28 Memorial Day (half staff dawn until noon)

A year from now, some of you will be griping about having to install a new boat registration decal, so make plans to get out there this season and get your money’s worth!
