“Testing the Waters” | A Paddle and Probe Adventure on the Rock River

From Rock River Coalition Newsletter Winter 2016 | Visit the Rock River Coalition Website

By Suzanne Wade, Project Coordinator

How exciting it will be to have the Rock River in Wisconsin united through our paddling, monitoring and educational
event. We’re working out the details, so EVERYTHING IS STILL DRAFT. Check for updates on our website, Facebook and in our spring newsletter. Sponsors are needed to support this project. Contact Suzanne Wade at suzanne@rockrivercoalition.org if you have suggestions for sponsors. We are also looking for volunteers to help with each day: organizing, paddling, driving support vehicles and driving local paddlers back to their vehicles.

Thank you to our steering committee. We would love to add your to the list!
