Paddle Down the Root River This Summer
On Thursday, August 8, the UW-Parkside College of Natural and Health Sciences welcomes the Root River Voyagers, students ages 7 to 12, from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Root River Environmental Education Community Center (REC) in Racine. As the season begins to change and it is time to return to school, participants will discover how lessons in nature can help you be successful in school. Hang out by the Root River with school teachers and college professors to understand more about how learning can lead to enjoying school and even landing your first job.
Through September 1, the REC offers public canoe and kayak rentals on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
