Free Field Trip:  Voyageur Canoeing & Fishing 

Students will work with the Wilderness Inquiry team to experience their local waterways in a whole new way.  They will be paddling in a 24-foot handmade Voyageur canoe and learning about how riverways play an important role in our history. On land, the students will work with For-Mar nature educators to learn about fishing and meet animals that call our rivers home!  All gear is provided and no experience is necessary.   Come dressed for the weather.
