Paddling the State: The I Heart Wisconsin River Trip

Thursday, May 11, 2017

The I Heart Wisconsin trip was an 18-day paddle from the source of the Wisconsin River to the confluence with the Mississippi in October 2015. As a positive response to the state’s budget cuts to natural resources, Ruth Oppedahl decided to use her vacation exploring our state from north to south, meeting with conservation groups and citizens along the way to learn how they help protect our lands, waters and wildlife. She discovered a beautiful, wild river and wonderful people along the way. Join us as she shares the adventures of her once in a lifetime experience. You can see a map and read her online journal at No registration is required. Ruth Oppedahl is the Executive Director of the Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin, a nonprofit organization that makes grants for managing public lands and research/monitoring on rare species in Wisconsin, and coordinates a renowned field trip program throughout the state.
