SI Treasure Tours, a Southern Illinois 501/c/3 is hosting a special event for families on the Cache River for Father’s Day, Sunday June 19, 2016 called Father’s Day Cache River Adventure, which includes only a canoe tour, but a campfire cookout afterwards. “For this tour we don’t use a bus and but actually go out on the river,” Erickson said. Mark Denzer of White Crane Canoes who’s also a professional wilderness guide will lead our guests through canoe trails of these unique internationally-recognized wetlands. Surprising cypress tupelo swamps, and wildlife abundant wetlands inspired French Voyagers over 200 years ago to name the Cache River, for the French word “hidden”. “We’ll be passing by trees that are over a thousand years old. You wouldn’t think we’re still in Southern Illinois” Erickson added. “On completion we will have a campsite roasted meal!“ Tours include sights and sounds of eagles, herons, egrets, ducks, turtles will greet you as you canoe through their watery habitat. For paddling enthusiasts of all skill levels. Paddlers will be able to choose to take their journey by either canoe or kayak provided by White Crane Canoes. The cost for the trip for adults is $25 and for youth or children is $15. Meeting place will be at the Berkhausen Wetlands Center in Cypress.
