- What -

Come learn to paddle a canoe with the Wolf River Conservancy! Our certified Paddle Guides will be on hand to help you learn the basics of controlling and safely paddling a canoe on our 25-acre lake along mile nine of the Wolf River Greenway trail. We have a 60-foot floating dock to make it even easier for anyone to paddle a canoe or kayak on the lake. There is no charge or fee to participate, this is free event. Participants are required to wear a PFD (Personal Floatation Device or Life Jacket) at all times while in a canoe or kayak on the lake.

-Where-

The Wolf River Greenway at Epping Way is located at 2630 Epping Way Drive. Vehicles can be parked in the cul-de-sac at this address. Walk through the gate, and down the trail, turning left at the "T" intersection at the lake. Follow the signs to our boat dock where volunteers will be stationed with boats.
