Six intrepid explorers, ages 12-18, recently paddled down the beautiful Namekagon River learning about wilderness survival skills and water quality.
The trip was a partnership between the Cable Natural History Museum, the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway, and Canoes on Wheels, with funding from the St. Croix Valley Foundation.
A second, longer trip, July 16-18, gives up to eight more students a chance to develop their paddling and camping skills even more. Spots are still available. Call Museum Naturalist/Educator, Emily Stone at 715-798-3890 for details.
