The Kaw, otherwise known as the Kansas River, begins at the confluence of the Republican and Smoky Hill rivers near Junction City, Kansas, and is the world’s largest prairie-based river system. Friends of the Kaw provide educational canoe and kayak float trips in an effort to protect and preserve the Kansas River, a valuable source of drinking water and vital habitat for plants and animals. Guided float trips for 16 to 24 paddlers run from April to mid-October. KAW paddle trips are at least one hour long.
