Presentations

 The Fabulous Fox River Water Trail and National Park Service Assistance

Loon - upstairs Sat 3:30pm-4:15pm 

Keen paddler interest in exploring waterways has spawned water trails worldwide. At a minimum, community supported water trails provide a series of sustainable, safe, and legal water access and camping sites along with public information. Water trails eligible for designation under the National Water Trail System (NWTS) provide this and more information including ecological stewardship and public engagement. Planning committee members of the Fabulous Fox Water Trail will share their experience developing the water trail in Wisconsin and Illinois with technical assistance provided by the National Park Service.
