Free paddling event for kids on Lake Wingra

Saturday, June 11, 2011

Voyageur canoe (left) on Monona Bay, 2010.

Parents--bring your kids for a paddle on Lake Wingra.  We'll paddle twin 11-passenger Voyageur canoes that are very stable for young participants.

Children must be accompanied by a parent and be at least 5 years old. The free event will be lead by Sue Josheff from DNR. Floatation vests and paddles will be provided.

There are two departure times--you may register for the first or second departure by sending the parent and child paddlers' names to:
susan.josheff@wisconsin.gov.  Please indicate child's age. You will receive an email confirmation, or notification if the event is canceled due to weather.
