Exploring Arkansas October 2011
Cardboard Boat Races, Mississippi Voyageur Canoe Excursion, Helena River Park
The world championship of cardboard boat races takes place on Greers Ferry Lake at Heber Springs every year We'll talk with a few of the contestants along with their cardboard boat building skills. Utilizing the same "voyageur" type canoes French explorers used, the Quapaw Canoe Company in Helena offers canoe excursions on the "Mighty Mississipp." Helena's River Park is also a wildlife sanctuary with a boardwalk that leads visitors to a front and center view of the Mississippi River.
