I Heart Wisconsin: A Paddling Adventure with Ruth Oppendahl

Monday, June 12th 6:00-7:15 - Heritage Room

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 and 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.
