Fox River Heritage Paddle 2010
This paddle was part of the Journey of Rediscovery, Summer 201o, including a series of 13 canoe and kayak trips over 9 weekends, beginning in Portage and traveling 190 miles to Green Bay.

The journey started at the Historic Indian Agency House and continued to Governor’s Bend Park, and then on to finish at CTH O. Pre-paddle presentations were given to describe the historic canal and the Indian Agency House. Members of the Marquette County HIstorical Preservation Society at Muir Park discussed the “Year of John Muir” and presented readings by John Muir. Check out awesome Segment 1 trip photos by Mark Hoffman and a second set by Jon Blough! And be sure to check out thePortage Daily Register’s story and great photos!
