Add some quality outdoor time to your visit to the Project North Festival by joining us on this guided paddle down a scenic section of the Wisconsin River just north of Rhinelander. Once a veritable highway for Native Americans, fur trappers, and lumberjacks traveling up and down the river, the waters flow quieter now. Look up to see a bald eagle. Check the bank for playful otters who call the river home. Maybe a whitetail deer will come down for a drink. The river is rich with life.
Participants must have at least some experience paddling a canoe or kayak. Plan on being on the water for about two to three hours, depending on the pace we travel. Kayaks and canoes are available for rent. Note that late September weather in Northern Wisconsin is variable. Sometimes warm, other times on the cool side. Dress accordingly.
Friday, Sept. 27
10 am to 2 pm – includes shuttle time back to your vehicle.
Meet at McNaughton Bridge - From the village of McNaughton located 11 miles north of Rhinelander along Hwy. 47, travel east on Bridge Road for approximately two-thirds of a mile to the boat landing. We’ll take out at the Apperson Boat Landing.
