THE REC CENTER

THE REC IS CLOSED FOR THE SEASON - SEE YOU NEXT YEAR

The Root River Environmental Education Community Center (REC) was founded in 2008 as a partnership between the University of Wisconsin-Parkside and the City of Racine.

Serving local residents, families, students, and youth groups, the REC seeks to promote appreciation, positive interaction, and responsible stewardship of the Root River and surrounding land (watershed) by providing residents and visitors with educational and recreational opportunities.

In addition to offering kayak and canoe rentals during the summer season, the REC also hosts environmental education workshops for families, private events, and school field trips.

SEASON
The REC is opened seasonally beginning the first week after Memorial day and ending the last week of September. We schedule private bookings on weekdays and evenings.  Events and equipment rental are weather permitting.

Regular Seasonal hours:  Saturday + Sunday  |  10am - 4pm
