The Arkansas River Coalition has cancelled Saturday and Sunday’s float down the Kansas River, set to begin near Junction City.  The Kansas River was to be floated because the Arkansas River is too low.

A online press release said it was cancelled because of  massive snow amounts.

The release also predicted that pending snow melt could also make it much easier to again float the Arkansas River southward from Wichita in the coming weeks. Floating the river has been extremely difficult since mid-summer because of declining water levels.

The group dedicated to protecting the Arkansas River often shares it with the general public through a variety of floats. Often, the group provides all needed equipment for those participating in events.
